Nun stuck in lift for three days prayed to be rescued

A NEW ZEALAND nun who was trapped in a lift in Italy for three days says she prayed until she was eventually rescued by a cleaner.

TVNZ reported that the 69-year-old nun from New Zealand became trapped in a lift in Rome on Friday, without food or water.

She was with her 58-year-old Irish companion at the time, TVNZ reported. The lift became stuck after there was an electrical power failure.

The pair were eventually discovered by a cleaner, after her calls to the Marist convent, where the women were trapped, went unanswered.

The two nuns, who were guests of the Marist Sister House, were the only people in the building over the weekend.

Once rescued, both were taken to a nearby hospital where they were treated for dehydration, TVNZ reported.
