If you’ve ever seen Jackass, then you know the scene where Steve-O is slung around in a used porta-potty by a crane, and… well he didn’t come out clean, to say the least.
Not gonna lie, I almost threw up watching that bit, and almost scarred me from ever using a porta-potty again. I mean, imagine being drunk at a concert and you’re in a porta-potty and somebody knocks that thing over… talk about a literal nightmare…
However, for one man who decided to take a trip to the historic field of the Battle of Gettysburg, this nightmare became a terrifying reality.
As he was doing his business in one of the porta-pottys on site, a massive tree fell on top of him, knocking the porta-potty over, and crushing him inside.
I mean, can you even imagine?
According to The York Daily Record, volunteer firefighters responded to a 911 call at Little Round Top after high winds had knocked over several trees, crushing a car and a porta-potty. Volunteers found nobody in the lone vehicle, so that could mean the missing man was in only one place: the porta-potty.
The volunteers cut him out, and was sent to Gettysburg Hospital to treat non life-threatening injuries.
Joe Robinson, assistant fire chief at the Barlow Volunteer Fire Department, had this to say about the situation:
“He was very lucky… It was a large tree, and it just missed striking him. It could have been very serious.
This is definitely something I have never seen before.”
So not only are you most likely covered in shit, you’re physically beaten by a falling tree in the process. After looking at the damage, it’s hard to imagine how he made it out of there alive.
Well, I guess that is one bright spot in the strange situation… the man could have definitely come out a lot worse.
