    Woman Impaled While Trying To Hop Fence

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City police are investigating after a woman was impaled on her neighbor's wrought iron fence the same day the neighbor's home was robbed, KMBC reported.

    Mary Beth Byers, 37, was trying to climb over the fence when she was impaled on it early Thursday morning. Her husband heard her screaming and found Byers stuck in the fence. He supported her to prevent the iron spike from impaling Byers further while waiting for paramedics to arrive.

    A resident who witnessed the incident said the woman had slipped 6 to 8 inches down on the fence. Gail Stark, the victim's mother, said paramedics had to remove part of the fence to free the impaled woman.

    She was taken to an area hospital, where she was listed in serious condition.

    Byers told authorities she went to her neighbor's house to return some garage sale items. But later in the day, the neighbor, who lives in the 1200 block of Northeast 81st Street, reported that her home had been robbed. Police are looking into the incident.

    If your first name starts with mary beth..you might be a red neck.
    If you impale your self on a fence attempting a robbery.. you might be a red neck.

    Just 4 questions will solve this daring caper.
    1 Did the nieghbors have a yard sale?
    2 What did she have with her?
    3 Which direction was she going when impaled.
    4 Did the robbery occur post impaleing? (The article wasnt clear)
    I dont suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

    The article states that they reported a robbery later in the day... which could mean that it occured earlier in the day. I wouldn't be surprised to see a connection.

    So now we have another use for all those cribbing blocks we carry on the Rescue Truck.
