If I drop something into a toilet it’s gone forever. Doesn’t matter if it was a diamond earring, a phone or a priceless family heirloom, I’m not sticking my hand down there to fish it out. Not everyone feels the same way about groping around in toilet bowls though, particularly one woman in China who not only went fishing for her dentures that she’d dropped, but got her arm stuck for FOUR HOURS.
Let’s take a moment to realize that no amount of washing or bleaching will get 100% of the poop particles out of those dentures.
A grandmother had to be rescued by firefighters after getting her arm stuck down a toilet – for FOUR hours.
Granny Zhang, 85, was trying to fish out her false teeth from the latrine in Guangyuan, in China, when she found she had become trapped.
She said: “At around 9am, I was washing my artificial teeth in the bathroom, and the teeth slipped and fell into the toilet pan and further slid into the hole.”
Zhang then tried to fish up the teeth up as she could see them lying at the bottom of the hole.
On trying to stand up, she found she had become stuck fast and had to wait until family members returned home.
An hour later, her daughter-in-law found her on the floor of the bathroom but she couldn’t free the arm – she then phoned emergency services.
Firemen soothed Zhang, then lubricated her arm with soap water and removed it.
I don’t care that you spent four hours trapped in a toilet to get them back, you need to burn those dentures and get a new pair.
