Hudson Valley Woman Rescued After Getting Stuck in Trash Chute
This is certainly not the way you want to start off your morning.
Unfortunately, one poor woman from the area had this happen Thursday morning, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.
Roosevelt Fire Department Assistant Chief William Marshall said the woman, who lives in the Heritage Pointe Apartments in Staatsburg, had to be rescued by emergency crews after she got stuck in a trash chute.
There's are few details how exactly this all occurred, but the Journal says she was rescued after residents called 911 after they heard the woman screaming.
NBC is reporting that she fell headfirst into the chute, and was stuck there for about forty minutes. There aren't any other details how the stuck woman passed the time before being recused.
Heritage Pointe is a senior rental community in Staatsburg, located just west of Route 9, near Norrie Point. Marshall said the unidentified woman was stuck between the second and third floor. Marshall told the Journal that the woman was rescued at about 8:30 a.m. Thursday.
Sources told the Poughkeepsie Journal she was sent to Vassar Brothers Medical Center for further observation and treatment.
