SALT LAKE CITY - Two close calls

A Salt Lake City man was stuck in his bathtub for almost six days.
The 82-year old man had not been heard from since close to New Years Day.

A neighbor found him after she didn't see him walking his dog for a few days.
He stayed alive by drinking the tap water from the bathtub, but is suffering from dehydration.

This type of accident is happening more often as the population continues to get older. He says it’s a good idea to check on the elderly from time to time.

Only two days ago and Ogden woman was found stuck in a floor vent for 30 hours. When she was pulled from the vent, her legs were purple with several cuts and scratches and she was dehydrated.
