Shirley Stockdale and the Sofabed

Howie Woo, whose whimsical crochet creations have been featured on Neatorama previously, was inspired to create this crocheted scene by a sad, strange news item from 2001. Shirley Stockdale of Cape Coral, Florida got her arm caught in a sofa bed and could not reach the telephone. She died two days later. Woo was haunted by the disturbing story, and crocheted Ms. Stockdale's last moment before the accident. Link -via Everlasting Blort
