Woman Found Stuck, Molded To Chair For Seven Months

Firefighters in OH got a shock last week when they were called to the home of a 550-pound woman who was stuck in a chair in her house, the Toledo Blade reports.

Authorities were forced to don hazmat suits before entering her property in a Springfield Township because of the home's unsanitary conditions.

Lucas County Sheriff's Office said 75-year-old Barbara's skin had been stuck to the seat since July and her body had become very weak, Fox News reports.

Foster screamed in agony as she was removed because her bones were so frail, they were breaking as EMS carried her.

"She's a hoarder and it got pretty bad, I didn't know how bad it got since I haven't been able to make it over there", Snyder said.

She is now recovering at the University of Toledo Medical Center and detectives are reviewing the case for any potential crime. "I should have done it", she says.

Officials responded to discover Foster's skin had molded to the chair and she was surrounded by feces and urine.

Toledo-Lucas County Health Department declared the home unfit for residents and posted a large orange sign in the woman's front window. The volunteer from Our Lady of Lourdes church told investigators that he had delivered food to her for the past ten years.

The volunteer said the woman was not "acting herself" and that he had not seen her anywhere but in her chair since July of 2016. Foster had become $1400 behind her property taxes.
