Woman glued to toilet seat says it wasn't funny

A woman who was glued to a store toilet seat in an apparent prank has been left with such painful injuries she is unable to sit down.

Illyanna De La Keur said she is still in huge amounts of pain almost two weeks after she sat on the seat at the Banks County Home Depot in north Georgia. I'm a grown woman who can't even sit up," Ms De La Keur said "I was stuck probably over an hour."

An embarrassed Ms De La Keur said she was still so sore, she is unable to leave her couch and wants answers as to how the incident happened and her subsequent rescue. Video footage of Ms De La Keur shows her screaming in pain as emergency workers try to free her.

They eventually did so with the help of WD40, but not before she suffered serious injuries to the skin on the back of her legs. "It wasn't funny," she said. "Whoever decided to do this it wasn't funny." Ms De La Keur also questioned why she wasn't taken to hospital with the seat attached where doctors could have separated it from her skin more safely.

C'mon. If it was Superglue, you use acetone (fingernail polish remover), not WD40. Surely the emergency services folks knew this.

Superglue is also water-soluble. Had she been able to sit in a warm bath for a while the glue would have hardened then cracked & flaked off. I'm sure the WD40 did nothing except sting where the skin was torn.
Poor woman.

Who sits on a toilet seat at Home Depot?? Or any other place of business for that matter. You hover, or if you must sit down cover the seat with toilet paper.
