Man's Arm Trapped in Train Toilet

A 26-year-old man dropped his phone into a toilet on a French train and reached in to retrieve it. His arm became stuck, and firemen had to rescue him!
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.

This is why you should not carry your phone in your pants pocket. Use a secure clip. Link -Thanks, Christophe!

Wow, that must have hurt.

Malarkey. The last time I caught my dorky bat-belt cell phone holder on a door jam and the spring-loaded clip literally exploded sending the phone crashing to the ground, was when I started carrying my phone in my front pants pocket. Have never had any problems since.

When I've had to carry a larger PDA for work I either put in it my coat, shoulder bag, or briefcase. I can't stand to have a brick of a gadget sticking out from my belt, like I'm a dang cop wearing tools. I've even seen people with two or more phones on belt holders, at the same time!

Similar reason I wouldn't be caught dead wearing a bluetooth headset. I have a wired one, when I need it. If cell phone radiation causes brain cancer, why wouldn't yet another tiny transceiver, albeit of lower power, cause similar problems?
