Tub Thumping

‘SHE was wrinkled before she went in, but you should have seen her when she came out. Lillian Harkendorff, 82, of Falls City, Nebraska, spent more than four days in her bath before being rescued.

The widow was recovering from a broken shoulder, and after running her bath discovered that she was too weak to pull herself out of the tub.

”I yelled and hollered, but nobody heard me,” Mrs Harkendorff told the Omaha World-Herald.

She kept warm by running hot water into the bath and wrapping herself in towels and a bath mat. She was eventually rescued after a worried friend called round to her house. ‘
