Woman Makes Fake 911 Call, Then Calls Again as Garage Door Crushes Her in Fatal Mishap (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,568749,00.html?loomia_ow=t0:s0:a16:g2:r5:c0.127086:b28436247:z10)

CALDWELL, Idaho Police say an Idaho woman who made a false 911 call to lure paramedics out of their station made a real emergency call minutes later when she got trapped under the station's garage door.

Melissa R. Farris died Oct. 2 of injuries suffered when she was crushed by the closing garage door at the Canyon County station.

Farris, a former paramedic at the station, had been trying to crawl under the door after the ambulance left to respond to a nonexistent traffic accident she'd called in a few minutes earlier.

Caldwell Police Chief Chris Allgood says it may never be known why Farris was trying to gain access to the station

But according to a police report obtained by KBCI-TV, her sister told investigators that Farris may have been going after prescription medication stored in the station.

Gives new meaning to the phrase "don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out".

That's a cool name, Chief Allgood.

Ironically, the town's Annual Fireman's Pancake Breakfast was scheduled for the next morning.

I only opened this thread cause I was certain it was going to be about Scott Pioli.

Although she's gone now, she'll always be a part of the Canyon County Station.
