KOKOMO, Ind. -- A 93-year-old woman says she spent three nights unable to get off the floor of her central Indiana home before her shouts got the attention of a newspaper carrier.

Wilkins tells the Kokomo Tribune (http://bit.ly/Ucn3FB ) she's feeling better after a hospital stay and that she's grateful newspaper carrier Sam Gregory heard her yelling for help.

Wilkins says she was able to scoot around the floor but couldn't reach her phone or door handles. She says Gregory always put the newspaper on her door handle so she moved close to the door for his arrival about 5 a.m. Saturday.
