Woman survives night outside in collapsed chair

Texas - Evelyn Rogers, 75, of Liberty Hill had gone outside to water her plants about 6 p.m. when she sat down to rest on a canvas chair because it was so hot. When Rogers sat down, she saw a piece of plastic sticking out underneath the chair’s bottom and pulled on it. That’s when the entire bottom of the chair ripped out, and she fell through the opening onto her patio, with most of her body encased by the chair’s aluminum frame. “I couldn’t get out of it, and I couldn’t turn it over,” she said last week from the hospital, where she was still recovering from her overnight ordeal. Ethan Mueller was delivering the American-Statesman about 5 a.m. He said last week that he almost drove away after tossing the paper, but he heard Rogers’ dog barking “pretty furiously.” “That’s when I noticed a sound like a cat fighting with a dog, and I saw Evelyn waving her hands, but I couldn’t tell from a distance what the situation was,” he said.  More
