A woman who became trapped in a shopping centre after closing time went viral after sharing her hilarious odeal and somewhat haphazard escape bid.
Sian Conway recorded her night in Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre after she completed her shift and discovered she was locked in.
She realised the centre was completely empty and documented the ‘sleepover’ incident on TikTok which features strong language.
People passing failed to notice her at the glass doors and she realised the exits were sealed off,
She told the Irish Mirror : “I think I’m going to be having a sleepover in Stephen’s Green. I feel blessed,” she joked
Sian was left going from floor to floor in search of a security guard for more than 40 minutes, but found no one who could help her leave.
She began plotting her eventual escape by taking the emergency fire exit down to the basement.
But her plans were dashed after realising that the basement’s exit doors were shut.
She eventually found freedom by bursting through the fire escape to the bar Harry’s on the Green, which is found underneath the centre, putting an end to her disastrous evening.
Sian said: “The two bartenders were looking at me like I had five heads, which is fair considering I probably looked demented. I had genuinely never been happier to see the outdoors in my life,”
She also revealed that she filmed her predicament not to attract views, but to take her mind off her situation as she struggled to get out.
“The building was completely empty, which was something she had not expected.
“One of my coworkers had told me if I ever had trouble getting out there’s usually a security guard somewhere.
“I’ve seen all the comments now from people telling me where to go but when I say there wasn’t a soul there I wasn’t messing,” she added.
Her initial post left viewers demanding an update to the story, resulting in her ordeal being shown over the course of three videos.
The Mirror told of another incident in shopping destination at the beginning of the month when Primark shoppers were stunned when a woman started going into labour on the shop floor.
Despite the shock, several customers didn’t let the bizarre event slow down their perusal of cut-price clothing and kept shopping.
In a TikTok video filmed in March but which has only now gone viral, the poster explained how the woman had been shopping at a Primark store in Nottingham city centre.
The user captioned the video saying: “How is someone literally giving birth in Nottingham Primark while everyone’s just casually shopping.”
In the clip, the woman can be heard wailing as she experiences labour pain.
