Woman, 94 found in freezer at Calif. nursing home

California investigators are trying to determine how a 94-year-old woman ended up in a freezer at a retirement home.

The Los Angeles Times said Saturday that the California Department of Social Services is investigating the Oct. 28 incident, when the employees of Silverado Senior Living in Calabasas could not find one of their 60 residents.

State records say that after a search of the grounds, the woman was found standing in the home's walk-in freezer.

Senior vice president of Silverado Mark Mostow said the woman was hospitalized but back safe at the home. He would not give further details, citing privacy restrictions.

The home reported the incident to the state as required.

The same home had a former caregiver convicted of torture and elder abuse earlier this year.
