Woman Sues After Toilet Seat Breaks

A woman is suing a Pennsylvania sports bar and restaurant, saying she got stuck inside a toilet bowl for 20 minutes after the seat broke.

Kathleen Hewko of Delran Township, N.J., says she was in the
bathroom at Starters Pub near Allentown when the handicapped toilet
seat she was sitting on cracked and dumped her into the bowl.

Hewko says in her lawsuit filed in federal court in November
that she had hip surgery prior to the Nov. 19, 2006, incident and
was re-injured when the seat broke.

The lawsuit names Starters and Kohler Co., the company that made
the toilet seat.

Representatives from both companies said they couldn't comment.
