From the fates worse than death department…

This from KTRK ABC-13 via the Associated Press:

BRISBANE, Australia — An Australian woman was rescued after spending a week wedged between her toilet and the bathroom door, an official said Tuesday.

The 67-year-old woman, suffering from dehydration, was taken to a hospital after firefighters in the eastern city of Ipswich ended her ordeal Sunday by removing the bathroom door from its hinges, Queensland state government spokesman Chantelle Rule said. The woman, who is diabetic, was not seriously ill, Rule said.

The woman, who has not been named, fell during the early hours of July 19 and somehow became trapped with her feet stuck on either side of the toilet bowl and her body wedged against the inward-opening door, Rule said.

That’s not the fate worse than death, although I think we’re creeping close to the line.

Let’s concentrate on a key line from the story: “The woman, who has not been named…”

Now, if this happened to you and you were named? Well pal, there’s your fate worse than death.
