A 76 year old Canadian woman missing since Thursday spent 12 hours trapped in an air conditioning shaft at a Silom, Bangkok, hotel before she was finally found and rescued. 

 

Siona Aloni, 76, who suffers from Alzheimer's went missing from her room at the hotel on Thursday night after checking in with her husband Jacob Aloni, 81.

 

Bang Rak police and foundation medics examined CCTV and found that the old lady had fallen three meters down an air-con shaft under repair in a darkened area of the hotel. 

 

Daily News reported that initially a rope was lowered to haul her up but soon it was realized that a wall had to be knocked down to allow her to breathe and effect her release. 

 

Following a three hour emergency operation she was extricated and taken to Chulalongkorn Hospital. Part of this was shown on a video.

 

Daily News described the hotel as a luxury one on Silom without naming the establishment.

Yes bottom Line, ... very VERY sorry for the Poor Lady. !!!  .... Still, there have been old ladies fall off small ladders, in their own Home, like just getting up to that top shelf, ....  and breaking their legs ... and not get found for some days !!! .... Still down an Air conditioning duct, would probably be a LOT WORSE. .... And in BKK heat ? .... I wonder if the AC was on !!! ... She might have died if not I would reckon ! ? ... A Bit like Old Aged "Hangover III" ... right !!! ...

Should have been well lit and/or well secured. "This Thailand, you take care yourself"!

Maybe not a good idea to go on holiday to Thailand when you have Alzheimer's and you are so old.... and the person looking after you is 81?
