Facebook group helps woman stuck in pool

Neighbor saw community post, came to rescue

A woman who found herself stuck in her New Hampshire swimming pool was able to rely on Facebook for help, reports The Associated Press.

Leslie, Kahn, 61, was stranded in her swimming pool after the ladder broke and she didn't have the strength to pull herself out. Alone and having left her cellphone inside the house, she was able to pull a chair holding her iPad over to her with a pool pole.

Kahn posted for help in a community Facebook page and soon a woman who lived in her neighborhood came to her rescue. The neighbor was then followed by police.

Kahn told local news station WMUR that sometimes you help others and other times, you ask for help.
