W.Va. woman lies on floor for 2 days after fall

By The Associated Press

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – A 92-year-old Charleston woman is recovering after a fall left her lying on a floor in her home for two days.

Evelyn McClure tells WCHS-TV her next-door neighbor and niece found her.

McClure says she thought she was going to die after she fell while walking down the stairs.

She says her neighbor watches out for her, but he was out of town when she fell.

McClure suffered several broken bones, including her collarbone and an arm. She’s recovering at a rehabilitation facility and sat up in bed for the first time on Tuesday.

She says the accident shows the importance of people checking on their neighbors, especially the elderly.
