A freak accident in Stony Point, Rockland County killed a woman inside her home.

Eyewitness News is told 63-year-old Diane Wilson was found trapped in her bathroom floor.

Officials report she actually fallen through her floor, or at least a leg fell through and then she became trapped.

Neighbors believe there had been some water damage to her floor, which may have compromised the structure.

When she failed to show up for work for at least three days, her supervisor apparently called authorities. The victim worked as a nurse.

Sadly, help would come too late.

Residents on Cricket Town Road say the victim cared for her 91-year-old elderly mother. Officials say Rosemary Wilson was bedridden and pretty incoherent and could not answer any questions.

The elderly mother has since been removed from the house and brought to the hospital.

Police do not suspect any foul play.
