A Woman is Saved After a Fall at Home When She Posts an Emergency Facebook Status Update!

Cindy Lincoln of Stuart, Florida was doing laundry at home, alone, when she slipped and fell. Her age wasn't given, but from photos we'd estimate she's in her late 50s or early 60s. As soon as she fell she heard her femur CRUNCH, and she was in excruciating pain. She couldn't stand up, she could barely move, and she couldn't get to a phone to call 911. After almost TEN HOURS on the floor, she realized her laptop was across the room on a table. So she managed to drag herself across the floor, reach up to the laptop, sign on to Facebook, and type a status update: "Call 911, I need help." All of her kids are adults and carry their smartphones on them, so she hoped one of them would see it. And a few minutes later, her daughter-in-law did and called 911. EMTs came to Cindy's house and took her to the hospital, where she's still recovering.
