A woman from Ohio, in the United States, had to make an embarrassing phone call to 911 after she got stuck in gym equipment. Christine Faulds was working out on the inversion table at the 24-hour Powerhouse Gym in Berea where the incident occurred at around 3am. An inversion table holds the body upside down to help stretch the spine and relieve back pain. He reportedly filmed himself exercising. Moments later, Christine’s practice went south after she got stuck in the training equipment.
Based on Independent, Ms Faulds ankle was locked on the inversion table so she couldn’t move from her position. He immediately called 911 for help from his watch as he set his phone to record a video of himself. In the now viral video, Christine can be heard calling a man named Jason, who is working out at the same gym, but because of the loud music, Jason cannot hear the call for help.

In the video, Faulds can be seen trying to lift himself up but to no avail. The women after being stuck for five-six minutes decided to call 911 from their smartwatches. He told the call attendant, “Hi, I can’t find a non-emergency number. There’s just one more person in the gym and I’m stuck on this, you know that upside down board?”
She further added, “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.”
Moments later, an officer came to Christine’s aid and freed her from the machine. Fitness buffs weren’t harmed during the ordeal.
