Falling toilet kills woman in Kangundo


A middle-aged woman died on Wednesday morning after a toilet caved in and fell on her in Kawethei, Kangundo Sub County.
According to Kangundo Sub County administrator Benard Kilonzo, the stones from the toilet fell on the woman killing her on the spot.
Kilonzo said it is possible the toilet caved in due to heavy rains being experienced in the region.
The deceased’s mother-in-law said her daughter-in-law went to the toilet at around 8:30am. A few minutes later, she heard a loud bang and knew something was amiss.
“I heard a loud bang from the toilet followed by a cry. I ran to the scene only to find the whole toilet had caved in and she was buried in the rubble,” she said.
The deceased’s sister-in-law said by the time they managed to bring a rope to save the lady, the whole toilet had gone down in shambles.
“I was called and told Faustine had slipped and fallen in the toilet, but when we came with a rope to help her, she had been covered by the toilet stones,” she said.
The body was retrieved and taken to Kangundo Level Four hospital mortuary.
