Police save elderly woman trapped in bathtub for two and a half hours

An immediate intervention by police and civil protection officers saved an elderly woman who had been trapped in a bathtub filled with water for about two and a half hours.

The case occurred at around 4.00pm in a social apartment block in Gżira. It appears that the woman ended up in her residence bath after feeling ill and could not come out of the bath tub.

Persons on site told tvm.com.mt that police officers had to force open the apartment’s door and that of the bathroom to release the elderly woman, who was found consciously.

The elderly woman was admitted at Mater Dei after she was medically assisted on site by a medical team.
