Christine shared a video of herself on TikTok where she is seen working out at the gym at 3am. In the now viral clip, he uses an inversion table, which supports the body upside down and helps stretch the spine and relieve back pain. However, while exercising, he soon realized that his ankle was locked in a machine and he was unable to move from his position, reports the Independent.
In the video, you can hear Christine calling another guy at the gym named Jason for help. However, due to the loud music, Jason was unable to hear this woman’s call for immediate help. He kept trying to lift himself up but to no avail. After that, he had only one option and that was to call 911. After waiting about five or six minutes, he used his smartwatch to call 911.
“Hi, I can’t find the non-emergency number. There’s just one more person in the gym and I’m stuck on this, you know that upside down board?” he told emergency workers.
“I wish there were more people in the gym now, but I’m stuck on this reverse back decompression thing. I don’t know, I just can’t get anyone’s attention in the gym. I was just stuck upside down and I couldn’t lift myself up,” he further added.
An officer arrived minutes after Christine called 911 and helped her. Christine told her fans and followers on TikTok that she had a headache and was a little dizzy after the incident.
