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 from La Rochelle to Bordeaux.

I am not sure what kind of plan this guy had, but it would take a lot for me to reach into a train toilet. I don't think a phone could get me to do that. The only thing I can think of is that he had a smoking hot chics number that was on that phone and nowhere else. Can there be another reason?
