Lock?

Is it possible to lock yourself in a large refrigeration chamber like that? You would think the OSHA would have mandated that large refrigerators be prevented from being locked from the inside to prevent suffocation accidents.

Oh great...

Oh great, was just breathing a sigh of relief that the murderer had been caught and now around the OTHER corner (exaggerating just a wee bit), THIS. Well, will just have to double-check those doors and windows; keep 'em locked! And be aware of surroundings...sigh...Yep, I'm definitely calling anything suspicious in...

"Is it possible to lock yourself in a large refrigeration chamber like that?"

It's probably a new safe room "feature" for South and East Augusta liquor stores and mini-markets. It's called the Section 8 lock.
