63 days in a storage unit.

Woman trapped in storage unit for 9 weeks
Nearly starves after being trapped inside, now suing business owner

A trial has begun in the case of an Alabama woman who sued the company operating a storage facility after she was trapped inside her 10-by-30 unit for 63 days.

Wanda Hudson subsisted on juice and canned food, finally being rescued when a nearby customer heard something inside the unit, the Mobile Register reports.

Emergency-room personnel reported the woman was suffering from "advanced starvation, unusual to find in medical circumstances in America today."

The paper reports Hudson rented the storage unit in October 2001 after her house was foreclosed and she needed somewhere to store her furniture and belongings.

The next month, according to Hudson's attorney, Mallory Mantiply, the manager of the facility found her unit unlocked and partially open, so he locked it. So started Hudson's ordeal inside the storage unit.

Gloria Turner, a former nurse with the hospital Hudson was taken to, testified to the jury this week.

"The first indication I had that something was going on was the smell," Turner told jurors, according to the paper. "She was asking God why he allowed this to happen to her. She was crying almost constantly. ... She was crying, praying, talking, she would go to sleep, wake up, it was a continual process."

Turner says Hudson weighed 85 pounds when she arrived.

Officials of Parkway Storage don't deny the woman spent two months in the unit, but they say Hudson erred by not making more noise.

"There was no yelling, no screaming, no beating on the doors, no nothing," the paper quotes defense attorney Bert Taylor as saying. "No one knew she was in there."


You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

It's not like those things are made of reinforced concrete either. I'm pretty sure I could bust out of one in less than 63 days.

Looks like Demiurge was right, she did win the case, sort of. There is a lot of things that don't make sense. If she was really living with her sister, why didn't her sister notify the police that she was missing? Did she walk to the storage unit? You usually go there to store stuff and you need to carry stuff to put it in, like a vehicle. Those crazy Alabama people.

Locked-up woman awarded $100,000

She said she was forced to spend 63 days confined in a DIP storage shed


Staff Reporter

A Mobile County Circuit Court jury awarded $100,000 Monday to a woman who claimed she was forced to spend 63 days locked in a Dauphin Island Parkway storage shed.

The verdict handed to Wanda Hudson was $9.9 million short of what the 44-year-old woman had wanted from Parkway Storage.

Her attorney, Mallory Mantiply, said the company was negligent when one of its employees apparently inadvertently locked Hudson into a 30 feet by 10 feet unit at its DIP facility.

During the two-day trial before Circuit Judge Rick Stout, Hudson told jurors she spent more than two months locked in the unheated unit with her meager belongings, with diminishing sustenance. As the days and nights drew on, her body wastes became overwhelming in the tight space, she said.

Mantiply said that before her confinement on Nov. 7, 2001, Hudson weighed 150 pounds. By Jan. 29, 2002, when she was pulled -- starving and dehydrated -- from the stench of unit No. 611, her weight had plunged to 85 pounds.

At one point Monday, jurors declared they were deadlocked, by a vote of 8 to 4. In whose favor, it was unclear. Stout admonished them to buck up and do their duty.

About two hours later, following questions posed to the judge about a plaintiff's own responsibility in his or her predicament, jurors delivered the verdict.

In her testimony, Hudson claimed she yelled out and pounded on the walls and doors of what she came to believe would be her "tomb" any time a passer-by approached, but they ignored her.

During the trial, defense attorney Burt Taylor suggested to jurors that Hudson -- who shortly before her ordeal began was evicted from her home -- was homeless, had been living in the storage unit for some time and was probably asleep the night a company employee found the door to her unit open.

When he closed and locked it, she was trapped.

Hudson rejected Taylor's premise that she was sleeping. She said she was "looking for some papers" amid her piles of possessions and simply never heard the sliding metal door slam shut.

But when it did, she said, her existence in the dim, cold shed took on "a life of its own."

During Taylor's cross-examination of her on Friday, she claimed that while she kept her belongings stored at Parkway, she was living with a sister in west Mobile.

"Was she expecting you that night?" Taylor asked.

"Yes," Hudson answered.

Yet, no one, including her sister, ever filed a missing persons report, Taylor asked.

"No," Hudson replied.

Evidence related to Hudson's mental and psychological history was not presented to the 10-woman, two-man jury.

Information within the case court files indicates that in late October 2001 -- about a week before she disappeared behind the doors of her storage shed -- mental health authorities asserted she posed "a real and present threat of substantial harm to herself anor others."

At various times, according to the court files, authorities have described Hudson as unable to "physically take care of herself ... allowing her physical condition to deteriorate to the point of threatening her health and well-being, making threats to kill herself."

Stout had ruled the evidence inadmissible.
