    She said that she was being attacked by someone. The gate closest to her was locked and had to be cut open by the fire dept. I believe she got in through an open gate on one side of the cemetery and when she got to the other side, she panicked. I wish this woman a speedy recovery. She must be humiliated. You guys are making a joke out of this when you don’t know the whole story.

      She was being attacked by someone? So when she got stuck on the fence they just stopped and went on about their business?

      If she was being attacked, shouldn’t that be something that should be reported on to warn other people in the area. No where in the story does anything mention an attack. Severely disappointed in WNEP if that is the case and it wasn’t reported on!! Wouldn’t the police be involved in relaying that to the public also?? Seems more plausible that you heard that from somewhere, because she may have used that that story due to humiliation. Accidents happen, and unfortunately with todays “e” everything, it is easier to get only part of the story or what someone wants you to get.

    She must be more agile than she looks, but then maybe not being she had to be pulled off the fence. Bet that hurt like hell. Maybe she won’t attempt it again, whatever stupid thing she was trying to do.
