Woman glues self to the floor.

    Martinsburg woman stuck on a liquid bandage
    MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — When Joyce Stewart sits down to her daily cup of coffee, she likely won't attempt first aid on herself again.
    On Monday morning, Stewart used 3M's liquid bandage to treat a crack on her heel and within minutes her foot was glued to the floor. It took three paramedics over an hour and a bottle of baby oil to free her.

    Stewart, 59, of Martinsburg had positioned her left foot so that her heel was off of the floor and applied the liquid to the back of her foot. Without realizing, the liquid had run from the back to the ball of her foot before she placed her foot flat on the floor again.

    Soon after, her grandson came in from and asked for pancakes. When Stewart tried to get up and move to the kitchen, she couldn't.

    "I said, 'Oh my gosh, I'm stuck,'" Stewart said.

    Stewart said that her relatives first thought she was joking. With a knife, she tried to loosen the linoleum's grasp on her foot. But after skin began to pull away and her foot started to bleed, Stewart said she realized it was no laughing matter.

    She sought help from her daughter, who lives next door. When family members failed to solve the problem, they called 911.

    Though the package states that the product runs easily and sets quickly while warning against getting the product on furniture, counters or clothes, it says nothing about warning against the gluing of body parts.

    "They should have that on there," Stewart said.

    Representatives from 3M have offered to pay for her medical expenses, Stewart said. She is expected to make a full recovery, but it may take her pride a bit longer to heal.

    "I was embarrassed," she said. "I was still in my robe."

    A company spokeswoman reached Wednesday morning in Minnesota did not have an immediate comment.
