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 who stands on outdoor toilet needs good balance.”
Talking your life being in the crapper.
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.
He heard the basement was for rent and went to check it out.
Or just because they were trying to peep at the people using the toilet... I’ve seen quite a few of those stories.
