Woman Stuck in Toilet Bowl Sues Bar and Toilet Company

Woman Stuck in Toilet Bowl when toilet seat crackedKathleen Hewko, from Delran Township, New Jersey, is suing a sports bar and restaurant, as well as the company who made the bar's toilet because she was "violently" stuck inside the toilet bowl for 20 minutes after the seat broke.

Below--Full Story

Hewko said that she went inside the ladies' room at Starters Pub in an Allentown suburb, Pennsylvania, when the toilet bowl she was sitting on broke, dumping her into the bowl.

She filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Allentown in November, saying that she had hip surgery before the incident happened and that she was re-injured when the seat cracked.

She filed a case against the Starters Pub and Kohler Co., the company that made the toilet seat.

John D. Cirrinicione, Hewko's laywer, said that the woman is not obese, weighing only around 130 to 140 pounds. "It's not a question of her being an obese woman."

As reported by The Morning Call, "Hewko is seeking more than $150,000 from both Starters and the Kohler Company for pain and suffering, mental anguish and other damages. She's also seeking attorney's fees.

John Hewko is also seeking more than $75,000 from the two parties for loss of consortium and companionship with his wife."
