DONEGAL NUN ‘DOING WELL’ AFTER BEING TRAPPED IN LIFT FOR THREE DAYS

first_imgA NUN from Donegal trapped in a lift with a colleague for THREE DAYS in the sweltering heat of Rome has been released from hospital.Sister Miriam McManus, from Bundoran and fellow Marist nun Sister Elisabeth O’Carroll, from New Zealand, were found by a cleaner after going missing.The sisters are based in Rome and got stuck in a lift at their convent in Via Aurelia on Friday – with the rest of the convent empty for the weekend. The cleaner raised the alarm on Monday morning when their rooms were empty.Police arrived on the scene quickly, and freed the poor nuns – who revealed they had been praying to be rescued all weekend.The women were then rushed to the nearby San Carlo di Nancy Hospital.“We’re fine now,” said 58-year-old Sister Miriam. “Did we pray? Of course – that’s how we got through the ordeal.”A spokeswoman for the order said both nuns had been released from hospital and were well on the road to recovery after suffering severe dehydration. They were unable to call for help as neither had mobile phones.“It was quite an ordeal for them to go through,” said the Marist Order spokeswoman.“They have been released from hospital, thank God. We are just so pleased they were found in time.”DONEGAL NUN ‘DOING WELL’ AFTER BEING TRAPPED IN LIFT FOR THREE DAYS was last modified: June 18th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bundorandonegalMarist OrdernunRomelast_img read more
