GLOUCESTER (TIP): A Subway employee who was trapped in a chiller in Gloucester for eight hours wrote ‘help me’ messages in ketchup on pieces of cardboard in a desperate attempt to be let out. Karlee Daubeney, 20, reportedly hoped her scrawled plea would be seen by CCTV operators but failed to get their attention, according to the Gloucester Citizen. It wasn’t until 7.30am the next day, when staff arrived to open the store, that she was freed.
She told the newspaper she had been working the late shift alone and was putting milk away in the walk-in chiller when the door shut behind her and locked her inside. Ms Daubeney said she was dressed in only leggings and a Subway shirt, but that the temperature inside the fridge was just a few degrees above zero.
She tweeted after the incident: “Got locked in a f*****g fridge over night for 8 hours and work don’t ask me if I’m okay, they ask if I can work tonight P**S TAKE”.
