Getty Images News

A woman working in the General Services building in Washington D.C. suffered serious injuries on Monday after the toilet she used exploded when she flushed it.

According to Channel 9 (WUSA) reports a memo made the rounds in the GSA building, warning people not to flush.

“Do NOT flush toilets or use any domestic water,” Channel 9 quotes the memo as saying.

“Due to a mechanical failure, there is high air pressure in the domestic water system that resulted in damage to toilets … There has been damage to flushed toilets that has resulted in injuries.”

According to medics on scene the woman sustained serious injuries, but nothing life threatening. Something like that will make you think twice about making sure you are at a safe distance the next time you flush a public toilet!
