Man gets stuck in toilet trying to retrieve cell phone A Chinese student had to be rescued by firefighters after he got his arm stuck down a toilet trying to retrieve his cell phone. The Chongqing Technology and Business University student was using the toilet in his dorm while on his phone before accidentally dropping it down the hole. In a desperate act to try and get it back, he wrapped newspaper around his arm and went in after the device. While the young man hoped the newspaper would keep his arm clean, it instead expanded in the water and trapped his arm in the U-tube of the toilet. The trapped man, who was not named because he was embarrassed, shouted to his dorm mates for help, but they were unable to pull his arm out. Once firefighters were called to the scene, they used specialized equipment to free him. The rescue took more than an hour. It was unclear if the cell phone was also rescued.
