A 26 year old man got himself into an embarrassing situation while on board a high-speed train in France on Sunday.
It seems that while using the washroom aboard the train, he accidentally dropped his mobile phone into the toilet. He bent to retrieve his phone but as he was fishing around his hand became trapped in the toilet.
Firefighters had to cut through the u-bend to free him. Witnesses at the scene say that that “He came out on a stretcher, with his hand still jammed in the toilet bowl, which they had to saw clean off.” The accident occurred on Sunday’s 4:47 pm train from La Rochelle to Bordeaux, in western France.
Train service was delayed for two hours as the victim was rescued. It’s thought that his hand became stuck due to the train toilets powerful suction system which drains the loos on board.
