A Pennsylvania woman died after her arm got caught in the door of a clothing drop-off box while she was apparently removing bags from the container, and she was left dangling with her feet off the ground. The woman was standing on a stepstool when it collapsed, breaking her arms and wrists and trapping her in the donation box. "She was fishing bags out and the ladder she was standing on gave way, and she couldn't get her hand loose," said Mount Carmel Police Chief. She died from blunt force trauma and hypothermia, according to the county coroner. Bags with clothes and shoes that had been pulled from the bin were on the ground. The woman's black Hummer was nearby with the engine still running, reported police. "It wasn't something that I would expect to be seeing," the Police Chief said when asked about items being removed from the donation bin.
