60-year-old woman gets stuck in folding trestle table

A 60 year-old woman is recovering in hospital after becoming trapped in a folding trestle table at her home on the NSW Central Coast.

The woman’s neighbour called emergency service on Sunday after noticing that the woman’s sprinklers had been on for an unusual amount of time.

When fire crews and paramedics arrived, they found the woman trapped in the folding table.


The table had folded up on the woman the previous night and she had been unable to call for help.

She was cut the woman free from the table and taken to Gosford Hospital in a stable condition.
