Emily Keeler Gets Trapped In The Bay, Doesn't Meet Jeff The Mannequin (TWEETS)

A Toronto writer turned to social media for help after she became trapped in a Hudson's Bay store after closing time on Wednesday.

Emily Keeler was shopping for sheets when the lights went out at the store at Yonge and Bloor Streets. She live-tweeted the "terrifying" experience as Twitter users drew comparisons with the 1980s-era children's show "Today's Special."

Sadly, she didn't dance with Jeff the friendly mannequin, though she did perform a little jig for a security camera during the time she was stuck inside.

We'll let Keeler's tweets tell the story.
