August 10—The Seattle Fire Department Technical Rescue Team freed a woman stuck inside a charity donation box near Georgetown this morning.

At 4:34 a.m. firefighters were called to the corner of 4th Avenue South and South Mead Street for a report of a female trapped inside a four foot by four foot by six foot donation box. The 26-year old female stated she crawled inside the box to gather clothes and was crawling out when her leg became stuck in the anti-theft mechanism.  The Technical Rescue Team used several heavy tools to pry open the mechanism entrapping the female’s leg and free her.
