LOMA LINDA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say an 80-year old woman in California has been rescued after spending four days trapped between her bed and the wall in her home.
    
The San Bernardino County sheriff's department said Thursday that the Loma Linda woman was discovered after authorities received a call for a welfare check at her home.
    
The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports that the woman had not been seen in several days and her pets weren't being fed.
    
The woman has been hospitalized after suffering a head injury and dehydration.
