KARLSRUHE - A patient in Germany was literally on pins and needles after being locked inside an acupuncture clinic when the staff went home, police said on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old woman said the needles had been inserted and she was lying on a treatment bed behind a screen on Tuesday evening when suddenly the lights went out and she heard the front door being locked as the clinic in Karlsruhe closed for the day.

After her cries for help went unheeded, she removed the acupuncture needles and used her mobile phone to summon emergency help.
