27 hours hanging upside down - woman, 89, trapped in cellar fall

Imagine hanging upside down for 27 hours in a dark cellar… now imagine you are 89 years old. Wouldn't you be scared? Not, it seems, if you are sprightly Joan Eaborn.

Joan fell into her cellar through a trapdoor when she tried to find a fuse box when the electricity was cut to her home in Ipswich, Suffolk, according to the Mail.

The pensioner was trapped in the ladder by her leg and left hanging until found by a neighbour. She was cut free by the fire brigade.

"I wasn’t scared. Worse things have happened in life. I was prepared to hold on for a few more hours at least," she said.

Amazing woman.
