Woman Plunges Through Sidewalk


Quote:
A heavyset woman caved through an Upper East Side sidewalk last night — dropping six feet into a huge hole where she was eventually pulled out by emergency crews using a crane-like rescue unit, authorities said.

The 31-year-old Queens woman was huddled up against the wall of Atomic Wings at the Blue Room Grill on the corner of East 60th Street and Second Avenue, seeking shelter from the rain while waiting for a bus, when the sidewalk below her gave way around 9:15 p.m., witnesses said.

“The woman was enormous. She had to be more than 300 pounds,” said Daniel Crumity, 44, of Queens, who watched in disbelief from a window inside the Blue Room. “The ground literally fell out from underneath her.

“It happened so fast she did not scream or anything. Everybody in the bar got up to look.”

She was taken to Cornell Hospital where she was treated for shoulder injuries and listed in stable condition.

The woman fell straight through the concrete into an area below that appeared to lead to the restaurant’s basement, witnesses added.

FDNY Fire Chief Thomas Jemmott said the woman had to be pulled up in “high-angle rescue unit” resembling a crane with cargo netting.

“Pretty sophisticated stuff,” he said. “She is a very large person, but we were able to secure her and stabilize her and lift her out of the hole.”

Messages left with the city’s Buildings Department and Transportation Department went unanswered.

Re: Woman Plunges Through Sidewalk

I haven't walked on those stupid metal doors since I was a young teenager!

Here's the video. Don't know if that is her before it starts. I can't tell if she is 6' 5".

She appears to be wearing a hospital gown under her dress. What's with that?

Re: Woman Plunges Through Sidewalk

*OK. I've seen her weight go from 300 to 400 pounds. Huffington Post has her at 6' 5", as well. See below.*

Looks Like She Got Her Big Break

Ulanda Williams, who stands 6' 5" and weighs 400 lbs, fell through a New York City sidewalk while trying to get out of the rain Friday, the New York Post reported. The 32-year-old social worker told the Post that officials said her above-average size "was the only thing that saved me."

While a thinner person may have died from the fall, Williams was able to walk away with only cuts, bruises and a broken arm, the Post reported.

Williams said she was waiting for a bus at around 9:10 p.m. and had only been standing in the same spot for about 10 seconds when the ground caved in beneath her.

Inspectors determined that the four-foot-by-six-foot slab of concrete had collapsed into a cellar in front of the building, WABC reported, and that defective steel doors and a loose staircase were partially responsible for the sidewalk collapse.

Williams had just stepped backwards to take shelter the rain under an awning when the four foot by six foot slab of concrete gave way. Inspectors with the Department of Buildings determined that defective steel doors and a loose staircase were responsible for the sidewalk collapse.

The building has several other open violations, according to the NYC Department of Buildings.

Her big ass is about to get paid easy. Maybe she'll consider losing some weight now. How embarrassing

Jesus. If it takes 10-12 firefighters to lift your ass into an ambulance, I think it might be time to start taking better care of yourself.
