TGV - watch out for the toilets

A passenger on a French train had to be rescued by firemen after having his arm sucked down the on-board toilet.

The victim was trapped when he tried to fish out his mobile phone, which had fallen into the toilet bowl, and fell foul of the suction system.

The TGV train had to stop for two hours on its journey between La Rochelle and Paris while firemen cut through the train's pipework.

"He came out on a stretcher with his hand still jammed in the toilet bowl, which they had to saw clean off," said a witness to the man's plight.
