JACKSON, N.Y. (AP) - A New York state trooper is being credited with saving a 90-year-old woman who had spent two days on the floor of her rural upstate home after falling and being unable to reach her phone.

State police say a trooper was dispatched Friday to the woman’s home in the Washington County town of Jackson, 30 miles northeast of Albany, after a neighbor became concerned because the woman’s mail hadn’t been picked for a couple days.

After failing to get a response when he arrived at the home, the trooper climbed through a window and found the woman lying on the floor. She told the trooper she had been injured in a fall two days earlier and was unable to crawl to her phone.

The woman was taken to the hospital in Bennington, Vermont, for treatment.
