Woman Gets Stuck In Charity Donation Box, Has To Call 911 For Help (AUDIO)

A woman had to think outside the box when she found herself trapped inside one.

The Oklahoma City resident called 911 last Saturday when she became stuck inside a charity donation bin, according to KFOR.

"This lady stopped a while ago and I said ‘excuse me, can you help me,’ and I guess I scared her so bad she sped off because she was putting something in here,” the woman told the dispatcher from inside the box.

“I bet you did scare her,” the dispatcher said.

KVEO reports that the woman, whose name was not released, accidentally dropped a tennis bracelet in the box. She tried to dig it out and got stuck in the process.

"I came down here and was kind of looking around, looking around, looking around and I got inside it," the woman told police. "And I have MS so it doesn't take much before I start really cramping up and hurting you know. And I can't get out."

After a couple hours, the woman was rescued by the fire department without suffering any major injuries.

The story is reminiscent of the unfortunate tale involving a man who got stuck in a drain after gang members allegedly attacked him.
