A WOMAN has been rescued after she spent a week trapped in her toilet.

The 67-year-old was taken to hospital suffering from dehydration after her ordeal in Ipswich, an eastern Australian city.

The woman, who has not been named, fell in the early hours and somehow became trapped between the toilet bowl and the inward-opening door.

Finally this Sunday a neighbour heard her cries for help and alerted the emergency services. Firefighters rescued the woman by removing the door.
