OSLO (Reuters) - An American woman had no need to fasten her seatbelt on a flight from Scandinavia to the
United States after a high-pressure vacuum flush sealed her to the toilet seat of the transatlantic airliner.
The woman filed a complaint with Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) after her ordeal on a Boeing 767 flight last year. She got sucked in after pushing the flush button while seated, activating a system to clean the toilet by vacuum, the airline said Monday.
``She could not get up by herself and had to sit on the toilet until the flight had landed so that ground technicians could help her get loose,'' a SAS spokeswoman told Reuters. ``She was stuck there for quite a long time.''
