85-year-old Woman Is Left in Bank Vault

Wow, an older lady went into a Swiss bank vault to review some of her personal belongings (I assume a safe deposit box type of thing) and got locked in the vault for 4 hours. The Swiss bank didn't notice / remember that she had gone in there and she was keeping so still that she didn't set off any of the detection devices within the bank.

The bank gave her some flowers and is evaluating whether they will give her any other "nonfinancial compensation."
