In the early morning of February 12 (New Year’s Day), Xinxin (a pseudonym), a 25-year-old woman living alone in Beijing, was trapped in the bathroom due to the latch stuck in the door frame and unable to open the door. At 4 o’clock on the 13th, Xinxin’s sound of tapping on the pipe finally caught the attention of a neighbor and helped Xinxin contact the unlocking company. Xinxin, who was trapped for about 30 hours, was “saved”.

On the afternoon of February 18, Xinxin told the Beijing News reporter that during the Spring Festival this year, he did not return to his hometown of Sichuan, but stayed in Beijing to celebrate the New Year. Xinxin rented and lived alone near Chaoyang Park, “a one-bedroom and one living room rented out for almost a year.”
According to Xinxin’s recollection, at about 0:50 on February 12, he entered the bathroom to wash himself, did not bring his mobile phone into the house as usual, and locked the door easily. After washing, Xinxin planned to leave the guard room, twisting the handle on the door, but the door could not be opened. “At first I thought it was a problem with the handle, so I turned it more vigorously, but found no change in the lock cylinder.”
After that, Xinxin successively tried to open the door with the eyebrow scraper blades, remove the shower nozzle and knock the glass on the door, so as to put his hand out and turn the key hung on the lock to open the door from the outside, but failed. Breaking the glass allows more air to come in.”

Xinxin said that when he was sleepy, he would sit on the toilet and sleep; when he was thirsty, he would drink tap water. Later, Xinxin repeatedly used the shower nozzle to vigorously hit the drain pipe of the bathroom and called out loudly for her location.
At about 4 o’clock on February 13th (the second day of the Lunar New Year), a neighbor downstairs finally heard a heart-to-heart call for help, and the two “talked and talked with their throats.” Heartily said, “During the conversation with him, I told him the password of the door code lock. After he entered the house, he tried to twist the bathroom door handle from the outside, but still couldn’t open it, so he called me and contacted the unlocking company. .”
At 7 o’clock on the 13th, the door lock in the guard room was removed by the unlocker, and the heart that had been trapped for about 30 hours was finally “saved”.

On the afternoon of February 18, the above-mentioned unlocking master introduced to a reporter from the Beijing News, “At that time, the bolt of the spherical lock got stuck in the door frame, and the door could not be opened with the key inside and outside the door, so it could only be opened by sawing. It also has a certain relationship with the quality of the lock. It is recommended to bring your communication equipment with you. If you find that the door is locked, you can contact unlock or dial 110.
“With this experience, I feel that the mobile phone must not be separated from the body.” Xinxin told the Beijing News reporter.
