This sounds very unpleasant. Firefighters in Bedminster, England recently had to help a toddler who got a toilet set suck around his head. The child’s mother, Kristy Smith snapped photos of the incident after she found her two-year-old son, Callum, with the seat around his neck. Smith says she noticed something was up when he was taking longer than usual to use the bathroom, and when he returned he was wearing the seat like a necklace. She said Callum only started using the bathroom independently recently, and she tried to remove the toilet seat herself, but it was harder than she thought it would be, as it was a child-sized seat. She added that firefighters were able to remove the seat using a pair of pliers—Callum wasn’t hurt.
