Elderly woman stuck in bath for 4 days saved by waitress

Press Trust of India  |  London 

An 86-year-old woman in the UK, who was stuck in her bathtub for four days, was rescued by an alert waitress who realised she had not come in for her usual lunch and wine.

Doreen Mann became stuck in her bath and kept herself warm by topping it up with hot water.

Fortunately, Sonia Congrave, 39, became concerned when Mann did not appear at Tomassi's cafe in Essex for a couple of days.

She called the police who helped the elderly out of the bathtub last week, the Southend Echo reported.
