Leslie Kahn had been trying to enjoy a nice swim in her backyard pool when the ladder broke. The 61-year-old didn't have the strength to pull herself out and with no one else home to help her, she was stranded.
Kahn had left her phone inside, but had brought out her iPad with her. The Epping, New Hampshire then used a pole to drag the chair her iPad was on to her. Kahn then posted a message asking for help on a community Facebook page.
In the end, a woman who lived nearby was able to come over, then police and a neighbor showed up and rescued her.
