Man, 82, and Woman, 86, Trapped in Bathtubs for Days in Separate Incidents

An 82-year-old man who slipped and fell in the bathtub of his Salt Lake City home says he was trapped there for five days.

Lou Beddow was found Tuesday by a neighbor who noticed Beddow hadn't been walking his dog for a while.

The retired postal carrier says he survived on tap water after he slipped and fell in the tub Friday.

Salt Lake City Fire Department spokesman Scott Freitag says Beddow was hospitalized in serious condition and may have suffered compression injuries.

Police in a Milwaukee suburb say they also found an elderly woman who fell in her bathtub. The 86-year-old woman from Cudahy was discovered Tuesday and says she was trapped for four days. She was hospitalized, but her condition is not known.
