Dunedin woman superglues lips together

A Dunedin woman was tightlipped when she rang 111, after mistakenly gluing her lips together.

Police received a call from St John just before midnight requesting Dunedin Police attend a job in South Dunedin yesterday.

Senior Sergeant Steve Aitken said the woman "sounded gagged or possibly had a medical condition''.

"She could only grunt.''

Police attended and found a 64-year-old woman had "mistaken a tube of superglue for lip cream'' and had glued her lips together.

She was taken to Dunedin Hospital, and is understood to have been released.
