One evening earlier this month a woman sat down on a toilet at a local KTV in Hubei, just as her skin touched the commode, the thing exploded, sending broken shards into the lower half of her body.
The violent accident resulted in serious injuries including a 7cm cut to her genitals. Bleeding heavily, the woman was transported to a hospital in the provincial capital of Wuhan, where she underwent three hours of surgery, reports NetEase. Following 48 hours in the intensive care unit, she was finally declared out of danger.
According to Apple Daily, while the KTV owner has acknowledged the accident, he doesn’t believe that his toilet spontaneously exploded, instead his theory is that the woman squatted on top of the commode, causing it to break and shatter. The woman has denied that she did any such thing.
Either way, the two parties have settled with the owner paying out 20,000 yuan in hospital costs. We’ll have to see what kind of toilet he buys as a replacement.
