"It was a small utility room, there were no windows and there was water in the basement," said Seattle Fire Department spokeswoman Helen Fitzpatrick. "Somehow, the door shut, and she couldn't open the door because of the water pressure."
The utility room of the home in the 500 block of 30th Avenue East filled to the ceiling with water, and the woman was underwater for about eight minutes, Fitzpatrick said.
Firefighters managed to rescue the woman by cutting a hole in the floor above the basement. Medics performed CPR, and the woman was transported to Harborview. No information was available about her condition.
What else is going on out there? I've been watching video feeds online and my lights are flickering.
