Workers free Pennsylvania inmate's arm from toilet
SHAMOKIN, PA - A Pennsylvania prisoner is free - relatively speaking - after spending part of the weekend with his arm stuck in a toilet.
The News Item in Shamokin reports that maintenance and emergency teams at the State Correctional Institution-Coal Township worked for several hours and wound up removing the toilet from its moorings to free the trapped limb.
They say the prisoner's arm became stuck Sunday morning when he reached into the toilet to fetch an item that had fallen in. They say removing the toilet allowed the man to pull his hand out of a connecting pipe and free his arm.
Officials didn't release the prisoner's name.
