FL woman spends days trapped in bathtub

PENSACOLA, FL (WFLX) - An 82-year-old woman is rescued after being trapped in her bathtub.

She was about to draw a late night bath when she fell in the tub and broke her arm. Patterson says she spent three and a half days banging on the walls and drinking bath water to survive.

Her neighbor says she thought the noise was coming from construction workers, but, when it kept on, she got suspicious and called for help.

Patterson is now undergoing rehabilitation for a broken arm and dislocated pelvic bone.
