Drunk lawyer crushes her arm trying to get into her Chelsea apartment
A completely hammered Manhattan lawyer who got locked out of her Chelsea apartment yesterday nearly lost her arm when she jumped down the garbage chute to get back inside.
The hare-brained bid began when attorney Maggie Baumer came home from a long night on the town at around 6 a.m., only to find herself stuck without the keys to her first-floor apartment on West 21st Street.
A source in the building said the buzzed Baumer had given her keys to a friend.
She entered the chute with her hands in front of her and her arm got caught in the compactor, triggering a motion detector, authorities said.
A piston crushed her arm, cutting almost all the way through, according to an FDNY source. It was barely hanging, the source said.
