Something always seems off about the way airplane bathrooms smell, even if they weren't just used. And on Wednesday, one man put his finger on the potential source of that problem -- only to find said finger stuck there.
Aboard a Cathay Pacific flight from Newark to Hong Kong, a 32-year-old American man known as Daniel, managed to get himself stuck in the restroom after his middle finger was trapped in the garbage receptacle. Talk about a Chinese finger trap.
The South China Morning Post reports the curious incident occurred at 4am, approximately an hour before the 15-hour flight landed at Chek Lap Kok airport. The pilot reputedly called the police 10 minutes after the plane landed, following a series of failed attempts from cabin crew to help the occupied gentleman.
