Woman was trapped under a dresser for four days at his home
A woman was trapped for nearly four days after a piece of furniture fell on her, Oregon officials say.

Neighbors called deputies from the Washington County Sheriff to verify what happened to the Cedar Mill resident, Virginia Cartier, 67, on Friday, after they realized they had not seen her in a while, the news media reported.

Deputies forced their way into the house of Cartier and found her trapped under a big piece of furniture that she had tried to move. Cartier slipped in and out of consciousness after having no food or water for four days, officials said.

She was taken to hospital with injuries to both legs and is recovering at home of a friend.
