(UPI) The bathroom is supposed to be a safe space, but there have been several surprising discoveries made in and around the toilet recently.
Here is a recap of five of them.
Trapped in the toilet
A woman's visit to Michigan's Dixon Lake went to pot recently when she followed her dropped Apple Watch into an outhouse tank and became trapped inside.
Michigan State Police responded alongside Department of Natural Resources personnel and Otsego County EMS when witnesses heard a woman calling for help from inside the outdoor toilet.
The woman told police she crawled into the commode's smelly storage system to retrieve her dropped Apple Watch and found she was unable to climb back out.
Rescuers removed the toilet and used a strap to hoist the woman -- and her retrieved watch -- out of the putrid pit.
The MSP raised a stink about the incident on social media, writing: "If you lose an item in an outhouse toilet, do not attempt to venture inside the containment area. Serious injury may occur."
There was another toilet misadventure in Hollywood, Fla., -- this time of the lizard variety.
