Man's arm trapped in train toilet



A passenger on a French train had to be rescued by firemen after having his arm sucked down the on-board toilet.

The 26-year-old victim was trapped when he tried to fish out his mobile phone, which had fallen into the toilet bowl, and fell foul of the suction system.

The high-speed TGV train had to stop for two hours while firemen cut through the train's pipework.

The man was carried away by emergency services, with the toilet still attached to his arm.

"He came out on a stretcher, with his hand still jammed in the toilet bowl, which they had to saw clean off," said Benoit Gigou, a witness to the man's plight.

The incident happened on Sunday evening, aboard a train travelling in western France between La Rochelle and Paris.
NOT MAKING THIS UP Clicky

If the suction is that strong what would happen if one was to flush while seated snugly on the bowl? There go your intestines, liver and spleen!!

The article did not mention if he ever got his phone back.

I'm surprised things like this don't happen more often, what with the way some Darwin Award candidates' walking around with them glued to their faces and completely oblivious to anything and everything around them.
