Some people think that it is safe to lock the bathroom once you are inside but it turns out that for a 69 year old Paris woman things went the other way around.
The unfortunate woman got trapped in her own apartments bathroom after she locked the door behind and the door lock got jammed. The woman got totally stranded as the bathroom had no windows and no phone. So the poor woman had to live on tap water and her only option to get rescued was banging the bathroom pipes with hope that somebody would listen and come to save her. But instead the neighbours thought that it was noise due to some construction work and registered a petition when the noise continued to come for days.
The woman was rescued after 20 days after her neighbours realized that they hadn't seen her for quite some time and alerted the authorities. She was weak but happy that her agony ended.
