MARYS — A St. Marys woman who became trapped under boxes was helped by two meter readers making a service call to the residence.</p><p> On Wednesday, Shane Walter and Andy Thobe were dispatched to a residence in reference to a frozen water line.</p><p> Utility Office Supervisor Carol Lengerich said the woman rescheduled several times before settling on an early afternoon service call.</p><p> “The meters went down and normally they just pull up to the house, but they went around the back and parked in the alley,” Lengerich said. “That’s when they heard someone calling for help.”</p><p> Lengerich said Walter and Thobe found the woman in the garage pinned under some boxes. The two removed the boxes and helped the woman to her feet.</p><p> “They asked her if she was OK and she said she was,” Lengerich said.</p><p> Lengerich noted the outcome could  have been much different if Walter and Thobe had not been scheduled to make a visit to the residence.</p><p> “Who knows who would have found her and when,” Lengerich said.</p><p> St. Marys Safety-Service Director Greg Foxhoven said the incident should serve as an example of the dedicated workforce the city employs.</p><p> “We are all very glad that this situation turned out the way it did,” Foxhoven said. “It had the best possible outcome.”</p>St. Marys, OHMike BurkholderGood Samaritans Make Lucky SaveThe Evening Foods For A Long Life2015-02-27T15:02:54-05:002015-02-27T15:02:54-05:00Copyright 2011 The Evening LeaderWhen it comes to maintaining health in our later years, eating right and fueling our bodies with nutritious food is key.
