Man had to be freed by firefighters after getting arm stuck in toilet trying to retrieve phone
A clumsy man who forced his hand into the hole of a toilet to try and retrieve his dropped mobile phone had to be freed by firefighters after getting stuck.
The man had been using a squat-style toilet, which has a small hole, in a hospital . In a desperate bid to grab his beloved smart phone, he held his breath and forced his hand into the hole to rummage around.
But not only did he fail to find his phone, he quickly realised that he had forced his way too far into the hole and was now stuck fast.
The man shouted for help and hospital staff at a nearby reception desk were alerted by patients.
Firefighters came to the stricken man's rescue as he lay trapped on the bathroom floor in the city of Erzurum in north-east Turkey.
