LILLE, France: While others were celebrating the start of 2013, an elderly French woman spent New Year's Eve trapped in a supermarket after being locked inside, officials said.

The 73-year-old was stuck inside the supermarket in the northern city of Roubaix after emerging from the toilet to find the shop closed and the doors locked, local firefighters said.

She set off the alarms several times throughout the night but there was no answer. She was only discovered the morning of New Year's Day around 10:30 am.

Despite her ordeal, the woman did not take advantage of the situation to snatch some New Year's treats and spent the night without eating or sleeping.
