Woman trapped inside Toronto Bay store live-tweets 'terrifying' experience

A Toronto woman who was trapped inside The Bay after it closed live-tweeted about her experience, prompting responses on social media that ranged from nostalgic to teasing to helpful.

Emily Keeler, a writer and the editor of Little Brother Magazine, was locked inside the store near Yonge and Bloor streets after it closed on Wednesday night.

Keeler, using her Twitter account @emilymkeeler, sent a message asking “Do I head to bedding for the night or?”

The responses flooded in, with one Twitter making a reference to Today’s Special, a popular children’s television program where a mannequin came alive at night. Another provided Keeler with the police non-emergency number, while another jokingly offered to drive his car through the store.

Keeler told CityNews on Friday she was not doing interviews about the experience but you can see what happened in the Tweets below:
