What gives, no pictures?
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - It took nearly seven hours, the demolition of a bathroom and a sturdy extension ladder for rescue workers to remove a more than 700-pound woman from her home here, officials said.
Rescue workers arrived at the woman's home about 5:45 p.m. Monday in response to reports she had fallen and injured herself in her second-floor bathroom, said Trenton Fire Department Battalion Chief Qareeb Bashir.
They didn't get her out until after midnight.
The undertaking ended up involving dozens of emergency medical responders and firefighters from Trenton and neighboring Ewing.
Firefighters eventually had to dismantle the toilet and radiator, then saw out part of the bathroom wall and window to create a large enough space to move the woman out.
As the hours went by, the woman was in surprisingly good spirits, Bashir said.
"She actually had a pleasant personality. She was laughing and cracking jokes about the situation," Bashir said.
Laughing and cracking jokes? Here's one for you, toots: Lose some fucking weight so the fire department doesn't have to waste its time cutting you out of your house, mmmmkay?
But in the meantime, all of this reminds me of the fantabulous tale of one Sylvanus "Hambone" Smith who, according to Rev. Webb, outweighed Miss Obese New Jersey yet ran a pawn shop out of his home. He was such a glorious man, in fact, that Richard Simmons stopped by for a visit. On the downside, Hambone's no longer with us. Remember him in your prayers.
