A woman has been rescued after getting stuck in her tub for five days, only escaping thanks to a vigilant postal worker who notified the police chief that her mail was piling up. 

Alison Gibson, 54, got stuck on October 15 after sitting down in the bathtub in her Chesaning, Michigan home and finding the handrails were out of reach and her cell phone was in the other room, WJRT-TV reported.

'When I get down there, I couldn't get back out,' Gibson told the station. 'Because (the handrail) was behind me, I couldn't get myself turned around to get a hold of it, that I usually use to get out.'

They found Gibson in the bathtub with the door to the bathroom closed - and mold growing on the inside of the door thanks to the constant moisture for five days. 

'The ceiling was dripping because of all of the moisture, but that was the only way she was able to stay warm,' Wilburn said.

Gibson was held for observation at a local hospital for four days, but suffered no serious health impact from the ordeal and was released in good condition.

She decided to speak out to thank her neighbors and the public servants who helped her escape the ordeal safely.

Gibson says she plans to have a walk-in bathtub installed as soon as possible

Because some people hurt themselves when they fall. Also at her age she could have muscle/bone issues. She also looks pretty heavy so maybe she couldnt actually lift herself out of it.
