Days after she came out of the rubbles of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), South African Lindiwe Ndwandwe finally recounted her five-day ordeal, revealing that she survived on her urine.
Ndwandwe attributed her rescue to her faith in God.
According to her, she survived by drinking her urine after she got dehydrated.
She said: “I was trapped in the toilet for five days. I was hungry and thirsty throughout my stay there. I couldn’t even move so I was just lying down because there was no leg or headroom to move around."
Rescue operations had been ongoing for four days when she walked out unaided on the fifth day at about 2 am last week Tuesday after excavation had been done in the section where she was trapped.
She said: “I was about to eat when I decided to visit the restroom. When I was there, I heard this noise and then the ceiling of the toilet came crumbling down.
“I heard people praying but I was alone in that place. I tried to sleep but it was difficult. It was through a hole that I knew whether it was day or night.
“On the third day, I knew they were rescuing people because I stopped hearing the voices of my neighbours.”
