A woman in her 70s is recovering in a Portland, Ore. hospital after getting her hand trapped underneath the hood of her pickup truck, forcing her to stand in harsh weather overnight.
The grueling accident started Wednesday afternoon when the woman was hooking up a charger to the battery of her truck near her home in Molalla, Ore.
The hood slammed down on her hand and clicked the latch, making it impossible to remove her arm, KPHO-TV reported.
The victim, whose name has not been released, was unable to sit down and spent 18 hours exposed to rain and snow. At one point, she jogged in place just to stay warm.
She screamed for help all night long, but no one her heard cries until the next day when some neighbors rode through the area on horseback, KATU-TV reported.
Poor thang. Thank goodness she made it through the night!
