Imagine trying to use the bathroom at a coffee and donut shop and the toilet explodes on you.
According to one man – and as gross as it might sound – this allegedly is what happened to him.
In a lawsuit that was filed, he complained that he was left filthy and injured from the incident that occurred in central Florida.
According to NBC News, “Paul Kerouac is seeking more than $100,000 in a lawsuit filed Wednesday in state court in Orlando, claiming he suffered “severe and long term injuries” following the explosion of a toilet in the men’s room of a Dunkin’ location in Winter Park, Florida, a year ago.”
The story continued:
“After the explosion left Kerouac covered in human feces, urine and debris, he walked out of the men’s room seeking help from workers and the store’s manager, according to the lawsuit. An employee told him that they were aware of the “problem with the toilet” since there had been previous incidents, the lawsuit says, without diving into further details about the explosion.
No Comment From Attorney
NBC News said they tried to reach out to Kerouac’s attorney, Scott Spradley, via email on Thursday, but he replied that he was too busy to give comments at the time.
The Dunkin’ company headquarters also did not immediately respond to an email seeking remarks.
Kerouac claims he suffered “bodily injury” from the event and also has had mental heath care, including counseling, for the last two years since it happened.
