The Yulin Fire Department responded received a bizarre call on Tuesday asking to help a drunk woman whose leg was trapped in a squat toilet in Yulin, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China.
The woman slipped and fell inside the bathroom, and got her right leg wedged in the squat toilet. Her family tried to free her but to no avail. They alerted emergency services at 3:38 a.m. on Tuesday to get help for the woman.
By the time firefighters arrived on the scene six minutes later, they were greeted by a weeping, drunk and distraught woman who was unable to move on the floor, according to Daily Mail.
Prior to the incident, her family members warned her never to use the squatting toilet while intoxicated, Beijing Youth Daily reported, but she obviously didn’t listen to their advice and ended up in a rather embarrassing situation.
In a video posted to Chinese social media, the firefighters resorted to using several tools to break the porcelain toilet and free the woman from being trapped. The woman only suffered minor injuries from the incident.
The Yulin Fire Department reminds people to drink responsibly especially during the holidays.
Getting stuck in a squatting toilet is a common occurrence in China. Two years ago, a man got his arm stuck inside a toilet after he tried to retrieve his phone.
