    Norway man rescued after climbing into public toilet

    Firefighters in Norway have pulled a man from the inside of a toilet after he lowered himself in to retrieve a friend's phone and became stuck in the tank below.

    Cato Berntsen Larsen climbed feet-first into the public facility after his friend dropped the phone while urinating.



    Mr Berntsen Larsen said he had volunteered to enter the tank, which is not connected to the sewer and which is only emptied once a season.

    The 20-year-old became sick as he stood thigh-deep in its contents, and had to spend an hour completely enclosed in the small area.

    "I panicked because I hate confined spaces," he told Norwegian newspaper VG.

    "It was damn disgusting - the worst I have experienced. There were animals down there too."

    To make matters worse, Mr Berntsen Larsen quickly threw up after entering the tank, which was standing room only.



    The unfortunate turn of events began when Mr Berntsen Larsen's friend shouted for help to rescue his phone.

    "I did not think twice," Mr Berntsen Larsen said.

    The amateur diver climbed in but immediately realised he was stuck. He later described himself as "apparently thin enough to go down but not thin enough to come up again".

    Firefighters were forced to destroy the toilet, which is now out of service.

    Mr Berntsen Larsen sustained injuries to his upper arms and said he believed he had been bitten several times. He was treated at hospital and given antibiotics.

    He was not successful in retrieving the phone.

    I'm usually distrustful of the truth of these stories
    but having being trapped in the boot of a car once myself (Above),
    after heroically diving in to retrieve my girlfriends phone - which had fallen out of her bra... I'm thinking this is real

    Although it is in the Queen of fake news the BBC so ...

    Bitten by what? What animals are surviving those conditions? Plenty of microorganisms, meaning high possibility of infections and rashes to come later on ... but immediate biting?

    In the tropics, possibly a hardy snake, but this is Norway.

    PS. Good to see the BBC is continuing to surface all the important news stories.

    Let's hope a certain 'Feces Intollerant'poster doesn't open this thread.

    Eh?

    Looks perfectly usable to me.

    Well, I do not think that a bit of your own vomit can make things much worse when you are standing thigh-deep in old shit with things crawling all over you.

    And I like how it is noted that there was standing room only there. That's a bummer.
    Because you would probably want to have a little sit down or possibly even lie down and relax for a bit.
    But well, standing room only so...

    Sometimes a picture is worth...: topum

    Those tattoos do reveal a man who has never thought twice.

    The space was confined. Yes, THAT was the issue. Deadly fumes? Disease? Meh.

    It was probably an ounce of junk, but he couldn't be telling the authorities that, could he.

    Why was your GF in the boot for the phone to have fallen out there in the first place?

    You are probably right. It all adds up to that.

    Totally off topic, but...

    Do you think he would have trouble finding a job in Thailand due to the facial hair?

    Looks like a good gay boys hang out. I wonder if it has a Glory Hole? Not that I'm interested.
