Fallen 93-year-old rescued by Indiana paper carrier

KOKOMO, Ind. (AP) — A 93-year-old woman says she spent three nights unable to get off the floor of her central Indiana home before her shouts got the attention of a newspaper carrier.

Esther Wilkins says she had no food or water between the time she fell insider her Kokomo home after returning from church Wednesday evening and when she was found Saturday morning.

Wilkins tells the Kokomo Tribune she's feeling better after a hospital stay and that she's grateful newspaper carrier Sam Gregory heard her yelling for help.

Wilkins says she was able to scoot around the floor but couldn't reach her phone or door handles. She says Gregory always put the newspaper on her door handle so she moved close to the door for his arrival about 5 a.m. Saturday.
