After becoming trapped in gym equipment, a woman from Ohio, USA, was forced to make an awkward 911 call. Around three in the morning, Christine Faulds was exercising on the inversion table at the Berea Powerhouse Gym, open round the clock. To extend the spine and ease back discomfort, the inversion table suspends the person upside down. According to reports, she recorded herself while exercising. Later, when Christine became locked in the gym equipment, her workout failed.
The Independent claims Ms. Faulds could not change positions because her ankles were locked into the inversion table. From her watch, she dialed 911 as soon as she set up her phone to record a video of herself. In the now-viral video, Christine can be heard calling a guy named Jason, who was working out at the same gym, but due to loud music, Jason couldn’t hear the call for help.
Ms. Faulds may be seen in the video attempting to raise herself but failing.
After being delayed for five to six minutes, the woman decided to call 911 through her smartwatch.
She told the officer on call, “Hi, I couldn’t look up the non-emergency number. At the gym, there is just one other person, and I got stuck in that flipping backboard.
I wish there were more people in the gym, but I’m trapped in this reverse back decompression, the woman continued.
I don’t know why, but I just can’t grab anyone’s attention in the gym.
I’m just unable to turn myself around because I’m upside down.
A police officer later showed up a short while to assist Christine and freed her from the machine. The fitness enthusiast wasn’t harmed during the ordeal.
