You know when we always joke about the toilet exploding after having a super pedas
Well, it's not so funny if it actually does happen to you.
Moments before disaster
A Malaysian woman got the unfortunate 'honour' when a toilet bowl shattered into pieces right in front of her just moments before she wanted to use it.
The woman, Syiera Eyya, took to Tik Tok to share her harrowing experience, and the video has been viewed more than 44,500 times.
Relating her experience to mStar
later, Syiera said she was helping her mother out at a café near their house when she needed to answer the call of nature.
"I had a stomach ache at that time which was probably caused by the nasi kandar
I had that morning and as per usual, I would go home to use the bathroom as it is nearby.
"When I reached home, I stopped to feed my cats first before going into the bathroom to wash my hands and legs before the incident happened," she told the news portal.
As she was washing her hands, the toilet’s ceramic tank fell from the wall, shattering the toilet bowl underneath it.
"When it shattered, I wasn’t just trembling, but my stomach ache went away as well.
"I cannot imagine what if I was using the toilet at that time, the toilet tank would have fallen on me," she was quoted as saying, adding that she immediately video called her mother after the incident.
Here's the video:
Crack on the wall
Syiera later realised that it wasn't a freak incident.
She told mStar
that she noticed a crack on the wall near the toilet tank a day after getting her bathroom sink replaced.
"The crack on the wall was there two or three days before I changed my sink, but I forgot to inform the housing management about it.
"The toilet tank which was screwed to the wall was also glued for further reinforcement, but the crack must have weakened the tank’s structure," she added.
Thankfully for her, she was unharmed in the incident, although she was pretty shook.
She has since replaced her shattered toilet bowl.
Now, we are being super paranoid every time we use the toilet. The last thing we want is for the ceramic tank to fall on us while we're doing the number two.
