It’s a miracle….

Irish nun drank own urine to survive after being trapped in an elevator

The 58-year-old was stuck in the lift for two days, along with a nun from New Zealand, before they were both rescued

Two nuns, who became trapped in an elevator in Italy for two days, were forced to drink their own urine in order to survive.

The 58-year-old and 68-year-old were stuck for two days and three nights in Rome on one of the hottest weekends of the year.
