At 69, she finds herself locked up for three weeks in her bathroom
IN 2011, the loneliness will be a "great national cause"
A woman aged 69 years, residing alone in an apartment in Epinay-sous-Senart (Essonne), near Paris, found herself locked up for three weeks in her bathroom. The latch having accidentally locked inside, the elderly woman did not find the forces that would have allowed him to break the lock or force the door. She remained trapped more than twenty days in the bathroom, not eating well water.
The old lady did try to warn her neighbors by knocking water pipes and the radiator, but it did not attract anyone's attention. Everyone thought he was plumbing work done in the condominium.
The disappearance of the old lady, however, ended up throwing some doubt and alerted the police. And heard a quiet voice, the police called the fire department who have made a rescue by the window. They rushed to hospital where she was gradually replenished.
François Fillon, Prime Minister, imposed solitude "great national cause" for 2011.
