Now I find out that just a couple weeks ago, a French dude dropped his cell phone in the toilet of a high-speed train, and got his arm stuck in la toilette while attempting to retrieve it. The TGV trains, as the BBC ably reports, "are equipped with a powerful suction system."
The train was delayed for two hours while firefighters cut through the plumbing in order to transport the man to the hospital with his arm still stuck in the toilet.
Treating patients attached to toilets? For European ER docs, c'est la vie.
