A Georgia man was taken to a local hospital after falling into a 5-foot deep pit of human feces on Saturday. The man, whose identity has not been released, was using an outhouse at a camp site in Carters Lake, Georgia when he reportedly slipped and fell into the pit.
Lisa Parker, spokesperson for U.S. Corps of Engineers, which own Carters Lake, says the accident occurred because the man “inappropriately” used their outhouse by standing on top of the toilet seat instead of sitting down. “We’ve had these type of toilet facilities for 10 to 15 years, and he just misused the toilet, unfortunately,” Parker said.
The man remained trapped in the sea of human waste for 70-minutes before he was rescued once his family realized he had gone missing. “He was covered in mess and scraped up” says Parker. The man was taken to a hospital where his condition remains unknown.
