Georgia woman recovering from toilet-seat glue pranks

ATLANTA, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- A Georgia woman said it would have been a better idea to have the toilet seat she was glued to removed by a doctor rather than the paramedics who used WD-40.

Illyanna De La Keur said she was recovering from several skin tears after a rescue crew spent several minutes trying to free her from the restroom at a Home Depot where unknown pranksters spread glue on the toilet seat.

"I couldn't understand why they weren't just taking me to an emergency room and having a doctor remove it," De La Keur told WSB-TV, Atlanta.

De La Keur said she was stuck for about an hour during the incident late last month at the Home Depot in Banks County. She was left not only embarrassed but also still in pain.

The woman's sister, Aleera Canino, agreed the ambulance crew should have opted for the safe route and taken Illyanna to the emergency room, seat and all. "She wasn't in her right state of mind to OK an experiment on her," Canino told WSB. "It worked, but I don't think she should have been there."
