Elderly Nursing Home Resident Dies in Water Filled Ditch After Rolling Down the Hill During Fire Drill

Elderly Woman Dies After Wheelchair Rolls Down Hill Into Water Ditch During Fire Drill
October 28, 2012

DECATUR, Ala. — A 94-year-old Alabama woman died after being injured when her wheelchair rolled down a hill and landed in a ditch full of water.

A relative says Elizabeth Street died at a hospital in Decatur on Saturday, three days after she was hurt.

The woman’s son-in-law, Wallace Everett, says Street developed pneumonia after the accident, but a cause of death hasn’t been determined. He says she also suffered from congestive heart failure.


Decatur Fire Chief Darwin Clark tells The Decatur Daily the accident occurred during a fire drill at Country Cottage Assisted Living.

Authorities received a call about a woman falling into a ditch full of water. A caregiver told emergency workers she went outside to discover the woman’s wheelchair had rolled down a hill and into the ditch.

“Our objective now is to better understand what happened, why this happened and what can be done to prevent it in the future,” Everett told The Decatur Daily.

Street was placed in the Country Cottage Assisted Living home after breaking her hip in October 2011.
