Exploding Toilet Burns Woman!

15 posts in this topic

"A woman has had to undergo skin grafting on her legs after she was badly burnt in a methane gas explosion caused by the lack of ventilation and cleanliness of a Barcelona bar toilet."

"When the woman switched on the light, a spark acted as a trigger for the methane gas which filled the toilet.

As the victim was sitting down, the gas was compressed therefore causing a strong blast."

This is why I carry a canary in a cage when there's a chance I may have to 'visit' a public toilet. Poor lady.

Decades of other peoples farts. In an enclosed, confined space! She must have been desperate. I hope. *adds Barcelona to list of places to visit while wearing a hazmat suit*

Dang right she's suing them. That has got to suck. I mean really. Wonder if any bands were playing in the toilet?

Hmm. I'm starting to think air tight rooms for bathrooms and barns aren't the way to go.

Does anyone know if there is any truth at all in this story? I know this has been going the rounds for decades but urban legends have been known to come true, but there are no details at all in it.

Any help appreciated, thanks.

Not without knowing Spanish, I'm afraid. :(

This particular story originates from a radio station, allegedly. http://www.catradio.cat/endirecte/

You could ask if it was a joke news item, if you have Spanish.
