    Default Woman stuck in swimming pool turns to Facebook for help

    Woman stuck in swimming pool turns to Facebook for help



    Associated Press



    EPPING, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire woman who became stuck in a swimming pool after the ladder broke turned to Facebook to ask for help getting out.

    Sixty-one-year-old Leslie Kahn was swimming in her pool Aug. 11 when the ladder broke, leaving her stranded. She said she didn't have the strength to pull herself. No one else was home and her cellphone was inside.
    She used a pool pole to drag the chair her iPad was on and posted in a community Facebook page, asking for help. She said she labeled the post "911" to get people's attention.
    A woman who lived nearby showed up, followed by police and a neighbor.
    Kahn, a breast cancer survivor, tells WMUR-TV that sometimes you help others and other times, you ask for help.

    It's a good rule, to never swim alone. I f you live alone. I guess you have no choice. Luckily, she did about the only things she could and got help.

    I hate to post so much later after the discussion is most likely over but this really caught my attention. Although it seems silly it did get the job done and it was actually kind of clever on the womans part. But I agree, never swim alone.
