Edwin Gallard, 41, of New York went to the toilet on a commuter train from Grand Central Station to make a call on his mobile. Then it all went down the toilet...


Gallard dropped his phone in the can, and reached down inside to try and retrieve it. He proceeded to get his arm stuck, and it took emergency crews 90 minutes to free him with the jaws of life.

Seriously.
