article imageAustralian Tot Destroys Parents Bathroom With Just Two Fingers

By KJ Mullins     Jul 14, 2008 in Lifestyle
When little Seth of Bendigo, Victoria, Australia got curious about the family's loo water supply in July 13 he plopped two of his little fingers into the water to check it out. Six hours later the tot's fingers were finally removed from the toilet.
Seth's fingers were sucked down the drain so tightly his parents had to call for help after a half hour. The hole was corroded so much that when the crew tried to remove it Seth was in horrible pain. Bruce Quarrier, CFA fire officer said as he told of the process to free the tyke.
That freeing process basically destroyed the entire bathroom. First the crews had to work underneath the home to cut pipes away and then they lifted the loo up. To do that they had to remove tiles off of the wall. In the end little Seth was transported to Bendigo Base Hospital still attached to the pipe and drain of the toilet.
At hospital doctors used hydraulic spreaders that resembled the jaws of life and hacksaws to finally free Seth from the pipe.
"It was one of those incidents you get where there are no shortcuts," Quarrier told reporters.
"The parents and grandparents were upset but there was no short way of doing it without causing injury.
"The boy was frightened at times, but was often laughing and in good spirits and came away with no cuts or bruises, just one blister."
When all was said and done the family's bathroom was destroyed. Quarrier is fairly certain that crews won't be called back to the home for a repeat performance from Seth.
As for his parents there is no word how they feel about having to front the cost of a new bathroom because of their curious little one.
