    Woman rescued after falling in toilet in National Forest while trying to retrieve dropped phone

    https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/...phone-84253234

    A woman who accidentally dropped her cellphone into the hole of an outhouse in a national forest and fell in while trying to retrieve it had to be rescued by firefighters in Washington state.

    Brinnon Fire Department Chief Tim Manly said the woman, who was at the top of Mount Walker in the Olympic National Forest northwest of Seattle, had been using her phone when it fell into the toilet on Tuesday, The Kitsap Sun reported.

    Manly said she disassembled the toilet seat and used dog leashes to try and get the phone and eventually used the leashes to tie herself off as she reached for it. That effort failed and she fell into the toilet headfirst.

    ?They didn?t work very well and in she went,? Manly said.

    The woman was alone and tried to get out for 10 to 15 minutes. Reunited with her phone, she called 911, Manly said.

    Responding firefighters passed her blocks to stand on to reach a harness, which they used to pull her out of the vault. The Brinnon Fire Department said the woman said she was uninjured.

    She was washed down and ?strongly encouraged to seek medical attention after being exposed to human waste, but she only wanted to leave,? the department said.

    ?I?ve been doing this for 40 years, and that was a first," Manly said.

    If my phone falls in an portapotty, no way am I getting it back out.

    My car keys almost fell in one. Precariously hung on the edge. I wonder how many times she vomited in there?

    I would be so worried I caught 5000000 diseases from in there. I would shower 1000 times.

    The germaphobe in me would never let me go in there in the first place, let along look for my phone in the hole.

    Same! Let it go. It's not worth it.

    She really should have gone to the hospital. Yikes, it reeks of hepatitis A.

    Yes, the phone would be there. I am a germaphobic nut. I can't touch doorknobs, so I know that I would just die if I dropped my phone in the toilet. That's what insurance is for. That would be $200 that I would happily pay.

    A woman who'd climb into a toilet for a phone might be up my alley... Not saying's I'd race over to ring her doorbell but the act of "portable toilet lost phone grabber" doesn't even peg my red flag meter. Think about the "giggles" you could have at 85+ years old while residing in an assisted living home and leaning over to whisper "Remember that time...?"

    However, "I'm not going to clean strangers' feces off me" is pretty close to the top of the red flag list. I don't want to lean over to that 85+ year old partner and say, "You STILL smell like shit..."

    I'd never be able to use my phone again even if I did get it back ( ′~‵) I mean, there's definitely no way you could clean it properly after that right? (◎ 。 ◎)

    I'm with you on that. First, I would never even go in an outhouse...and if I did...I would never try to grab a phone if it fell in.
