Phone disasters

Fed up with getting involved with school run traffic during rush hour? Sick and tired of being on trains and buses crowded in like sardines? Well rush hour could be lot worse. Not one but two similar mobile phone disaster stories for you.......

A passenger on a French train had to be rescued by firemen after having his arm sucked down the on-board toilet.  The 26-year-old victim was trapped when he tried to fish out his mobile phone, which had fallen into the toilet bowl, and fell foul of the suction system.  The high-speed TGV train had to stop for two hours while firemen cut through the train's pipework.

The man was carried away by emergency services, with the toilet still attached to his arm.  "He came out on a stretcher, with his hand still jammed in the toilet bowl, which they had to saw clean off," said Benoit Gigou, a witness to the man's plight.  The incident happened on Sunday evening, aboard a train travelling in western France between La Rochelle and Paris.

Then just a day later this happened in China...... Do you spot a theme here????
