The 21-year-old from Beitar Illit was found in good condition, though suffering from exhaustion, after she accidentally locked herself out on a balcony at work.The woman's parents first became worried when she did not return home from work as usual and was not answering her cell phone. Police were contacted and a team began investigating the incident.
