Sixty-one-year-old Leslie Kahn was swimming in her backyard pool on August 11th when the ladder broke, leaving her stranded in the water. She said she didn’t have the strength to pull herself out. No one else was home at the time and her cellphone was inside. She used a pool pole to drag a chair, with her iPad was sitting on it, loser to her, and then posted in a community Facebook page asking for help. She said she labeled the post “911” to get people’s attention. A woman who lived nearby soon showed up, followed by police and another neighbor. Kahn, a breast cancer survivor, told the local news that sometimes you help others and other times, you ask for help.
