Woman super glued to a toilet seat at a Kentucky Walmart restroom
A woman had to be rescued from a Kentucky Walmart restroom last week after found super glued to a toilet seat.
Stuck for at least an hour, the unidentified woman was removed by Emergency Medical Services inside the store’s restroom in Monticello, Kentucky.
“We are looking at it. Right now I wouldn’t be prepared to say if it was accidental or intentional,” Chief Ralph Miniard of the Monticello Police Department told WAVE.
The woman was taken to a local hospital to be checked out.
Police said an investigation was underway with no reported suspects.
Chief Ralph Miniard said that the incident was suspected as more than curious for one bonding reason: “From the simple fact that the superglue or that type of adhesive is very fast drying. If it had been there very long it wouldn’t have stuck,” he told LEX 18.
The adhesive, a single square-inch of which can hold more than a ton in weight depending on the brand, can also cause burns to skin if a large amount of the glue is in contact.
Not the first Walmart seat to find itself lined in super glue, however, just over a year ago a man was also caught with his pants down in a restroom in Maryland.
That 48-year-old escaped the store with the toilet seat still stuck to him after a 15-minute rescue by EMS.
It was later that day removed at a local hospital.
Police in that case reported the offender could face second-degree assault charges.
That man received minor injuries to his buttocks, officers told CNN.
Acetone, a chemical commonly found in nail polish remover, is advised as a common method – along with warm, soapy water, of unbinding the sticky glue.
