Woman Rescued after Being Trapped in Clothing Bin for 3 Days


A New Jersey woman was on Monday morning rescued after she was trapped inside a clothing bin for three days.

A passerby heard screams from inside a large bin on Broadway in Paterson. Emergency crews responded to the scene and managed to use spreading tools to open up the bottom of the container and free the victim.

The 38-year-old woman told authorities that someone pushed her as she was reaching into the bin on Friday night, causing her to fall inside and become trapped. She claimed she remained trapped all weekend.

The woman was suffering from frostbite and was hospitalized at St. Joseph’s Medical Center.

Authorities were, however, suspicious about her story, saying that this is the third time in two years for the woman to be rescued from inside a clothing bin.
