Toast! Ruuuuuuuun!
A Chandler woman escaped certain death a lousy breakfast yesterday morning -- when she noticed her toast was burning, she panicked and jumped off the balcony of her apartment.

Chandler fire officials say fire units responded to the "fire" at 800 North Federal Street near Ray Road and Loop 101 about 9:30 a.m. yesterday. There wasn't much of a fire, just some burnt toast.

When fire crews got to the scene, the woman was screaming "I'm trapped," KPHO reports.

Fire crews took the toaster outside to air it out, and say nothing other than the toast was burned.

It's unclear to fire officials why the woman opted to jump off a balcony, rather than, say, use the door to escape the (ahem) blaze. Or, better yet, just throw the flaming toast in the sink.

Nope -- she jumped off the balcony, breaking her leg.

The woman was taken to an area hospital and treated for her injuries -- again, sustained by jumping off a balcony to escape some burning toast.

I take extreme offense to this so called "journalism". Yes, it WAS life threatening, and for you to MAKE FUN of this situation is disgusting. The woman broke her back, hip, leg and dislocated her other hip. She had bleeding in her spine. As a close family member it is hurtful and appalling that someone who so desparately needs help, is in dire pain from her injuries, and is literally fighting for her life against mental illness right now is made to be a joke.

KPHO sends a helicopter to cover a burnt toast story? Definately a slow news day.

But we all needed a laugh, though. I don't mind, kudos to KPHO on this one. This is "Offbeat" worthy.
