This made me smile.

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 from La Rochelle to Bordeaux.

The image in my mind of him being carried off the train with his hand still jammed in the toilet bowl cracks me up.

I wonder if his call got "logged"?:w00t:

Who knew toilets where such dangerous devices? Maybe you should need a licence to use one?

Following on with embarrassing toilet related accidents

Plumber hurt in toilet accident

[SIZE=2]Firefighters say a plumber is lucky to have survived after an accident while he was repairing a disabled lavatory.

[/SIZE][SIZE=2]Paul Sanders, 34, became trapped by the neck face down after accidentally activating a hydraulic toilet seat.

[/SIZE] [SIZE=2]Ambulance crews thought his neck was broken, but X-rays later showed he had suffered only bruising.
[/SIZE] [SIZE=2]Rescuers were called to the property in Jubilee Road, Northfield, on Wednesday after Mr Sanders's workmates heard his screams for help.

[/SIZE] [SIZE=2]The plumber had reached through the lifting frame to fit a waste pipe and accidentally activated it.

[/SIZE] [SIZE=2]'Crush man's skull'
[/SIZE] [SIZE=2]Officers used hydraulic equipment to prise the frame apart before Mr Sanders was taken to hospital and later discharged after treatment.

[/SIZE] [SIZE=2]Station Officer Martyn Price of West Midlands Fire Service said: "The paramedics who turned up were convinced he had a broken neck. [/SIZE][SIZE=2]"But fortunately he got away with it. He's very lucky.
[/SIZE] [SIZE=2]"It came all the way down on top of his neck and it's easily powerful enough to crush a man's skull." [/SIZE]
