Elderly man trapped at bottom of toilet

CHATSWORTH, Ga.- An elderly man was hospitalized after spending more than an hour trapped at the bottom of a deep toilet pit at a Georgia park, officials said.

Lisa Parker, spokeswoman for the district that covers the U.S. Corps of Engineers property at Carters Lake, said toilets at the park open to the hole where the refuse is treated and left to decompose. The man apparently fell in after standing on the toilet instead of sitting, the Dalton (Ga.) Daily Citizen reported Thursday.

"We've had these type of toilet facilities for 10 to 15 years, and he just misused the toilet, unfortunately," Parker said.

Parker said the man was trapped for about 70 minutes, as it took some time for family members to become concerned and park representatives had to be summoned to unlock the door.

The spokeswoman said the man was "covered in mess and scraped up." He was taken to Murray Medical Center in Chatsworth.

He probably had his dentures fall out and went down to retrieve them...

I’ve often wondered if more people have found themselves in the bottom of an outhouse because they were hiding in fear from someone or because someone cruel forced them into there.

"U.S. Corps of Engineers property"

Privately-owned property and he'd be rich, no matter how at fault he was. Gov't-owned and he is "Shit out of Luck!"

That is where he hails from. An outhouse.

Guy I knew in the army worked for a couple of years for his uncle,
who was coroner, mortician, and M.E. for several consolidated counties on a great lakes peninsula.
One spring he had to lowered down an outhouse in a state park,
to retrieve the remains of a man who was murdered, then dumped into the pit below.
The body was found when it 'popped up'...

I wonder if he was Asian? In Japan (never been to China) the tradtional toilets are just a large drain hole opening in the floor. You simply pull up your kimono and squat.

Years ago at a Woodsmans field day in upstate NY, My then 70 YO grandfather had a bunch of his old lumberjack buddies decide to play a trick on him in one of the blue porta pottys they have at outdoor events.

They were all drinking and got together to ‘shake him up’ a bit. So they shook and shook and the “HEYYYYY!!!!!!!” screaming did commence. They shook it back and forth until it tipped over. And as my Grandfather walked out of the NEXT portapotty over, they all ran for the hills.

The wrong old guy covered in....was not really amused.

Never trust old drunk lumberjacks. A moral to live by.

I wonder if he was Middle Eastern? When I was in Tunisia, they had a hole in the concrete floor with a bucket of water and a stick. Coming out of it were cockroaches 2 inches long. You didn’t dare sit down on that hole.

There is a famous patent of old for somebody who invented a four roller toilet seat to prevent people from standing on it, as was long the tradition in the back country.

Or just because they were trying to peep at the people using the toilet... I’ve seen quite a few of those stories.
