GAYLORD – Michigan State Police troopers saved a woman who climbed down into an outhouse Sept. 19 about 11 a.m. and got stuck
First responders were called to the DNR boat launch at Dixon Lake for a woman stuck inside the outhouse toilet. The woman was heard yelling for help and told first responders she had dropped her Apple Watch in the toilet.
She then lowered herself inside the toilet to retrieve it and could not get out.
Conservation Officers from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR), troopers from the Michigan State Police (MSP) Gaylord Post, and Otsego County EMS responded to the scene.
The toilet was removed, and a strap was used to hoist the woman out to safety.
Troopers suggest that if you lose an item in an outhouse toilet, do not attempt to venture inside the containment area. Serious injury may occur.
