    A 15-hour flight to Hong Kong proved a particular ordeal for one USpassenger who accidentally trapped his middle finger in a lavatory rubbish bin early Wednesday, police said.

    Police said in a statement the 32-year-old suffered the accident on a Cathay Pacific flight.

    The passenger on the flight from Newark became trapped more than one hour before landing when he threw away some garbage, the South China Morning Post reported.

    He had to stand alone in the washroom during the landing after flying for over 14 hours, it said.

    Police said the man was able to free his hand with the help of firefighters after the plane landed and did not need hospital treatment.

    I've been trapped on a toilet for way longer than that after eating Taco Bell. 15 hours really seems like a piece of cake. Just saying :dontknow:

    Exactly...

    Very misleading headline. The flight was 15 hours, but he was only stuck for 1 hour. Why not sensationalize it even more? Man trapped in plane toilet during month long vacation to China????

    My girlfriend in high school was on the way home from spring break and got stuck in the bathroom on her plane.

    They couldn't land with her in there so the pilot had to circle the runway while they broke in with an axe. :rofl:
