It seems China's people have a penchant for trying their luck in small spaces – and then getting stuck. A girl's arm was trapped down a squat toilet for two hours, after trying to retrieve her mobile phone.

The girl, surnamed Liu, accidentally dropped her mobile into a toilet at Suining City Medical School on March 20, according to the Suining Daily. The medical student's arm became trapped in the U-Bend of the toilet while trying to retrieve the device. After a teacher failed to free Liu for an hour, firefighters were called to disassemble the toilet.

Liu sustained no serious injury according to paramedics.
