Firefighters rescue woman who got stuck in a vault toilet

KIRO7: Firefighters from Brinnon and Quilcene came to the rescue of a woman who fell and got stuck in a vault toilet after attempting to retrieve her cellphone.

This occurred at the top of Mount Walker near the north parking lot.

Brinnon rescuers said the woman, in her 40s, was using the toilet when she dropped the phone inside.

The woman reportedly tried to dismantle the toilet by taking off the seat and housing to get her phone. She used her dog’s leashes to help support her while trying to fish the phone out, but they failed and she slid into the toilet head first, firefighters said.

She then used her cellphone to call 911 after about 20 minutes in an attempt to climb out.
