NJ Woman Pinned Overnight By Vending Machine

A resident of a senior center was pinned under a fallen vending machine at a New Jersey gas station overnight, according to a published report.

The woman, a resident of the Concordia senior community center in Monroe, N.J., was freed by police hours after her leg became trapped under a toppled vending machine, according to NJ.com.  

It is unclear if she was injured.

BP station attendants arriving for work around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday found a note on the door instructing them to call police, the paper said.

It's unclear how long the woman was trapped but police reportedly said the rescue took place early Tuesday.  The station closed at 10 p.m. Monday night and had a last gas delivery around 11 p.m., the paper said.
