Earlier this week, a woman found herself in a peculiar predicament in northern Michigan when she became trapped in an outhouse toilet while attempting to retrieve her Apple Watch.
Smartwatches have gained immense popularity in recent years, offering various features like heart rate monitoring, fitness tracking, and the ability to handle calls and messages. However, some individuals may rely on their smartwatches a bit too much.
On the mentioned date, a woman at Dixon Lake in Michigan became stuck in an outhouse toilet while attempting to recover her Apple Watch, which had accidentally fallen inside. This unusual incident led to a rescue operation, along with a cautionary message from the police to avoid searching through the “containment area.”
Michigan State Police reported that the woman had “lowered herself inside the toilet to retrieve” her dropped Apple Watch. When she began shouting for assistance, first responders were summoned to the scene. They removed the toilet and employed a strap to extract the woman from her predicament.
A spokesperson from the Michigan State Police, Derrick Carroll, described the situation as the woman being “in the muck.” Upon the arrival of the State Police, they took the necessary steps to safely free her from the toilet.
Fortunately, the woman successfully retrieved her Apple Watch, as reported by UpNorthLive. However, the troopers have issued a public advisory, urging people not to attempt to retrieve dropped belongings in such situations. Venturing into an outhouse toilet is generally discouraged and deemed unsafe.
For $400 – $700, would you really lower yourself in to a waste tank in order to get your smartwatch back?
