Police: Girl caught in noose while working at St. Louis-area haunted house had slipped off tub By The Associated Press

FENTON, Mo. (AP) ' Police say a 17-year-old girl who got her neck caught in a noose while working at a St. Louis-area haunted house was acting in a bathroom horror scene when she apparently slipped off the tub.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department released a report Wednesday saying the girl's neck somehow became caught in the noose that was being used for visual effect. It said officers found shoe prints on the sides of the tub and scuff marks on the wall

Another worker and a maintenance employee found her hanging from the noose.

She remains hospitalized, but was moved out of intensive care earlier this week. A hospital spokeswoman declined to discuss her condition. Her name has not been released.

A man answering phones at the Creepyworld haunted house declined to comment.
