Newark passenger gets stuck in airplane bathroom

Posted: Updated:

An American traveler was reportedly trapped in a toilet on board a flight from Newark to Hong Kong after his middle finger became jammed in a trash bin.

The 32-year-old, who was not identified, was forced to endure a landing at Chek Lap Kok airport while standing in the bathroom alone, according to a report out of Hong Kong.

Police said it was not until 10 minutes after the plane landed that the man managed to free himself.

The ordeal started when he went to visit the toilet at 4 a.m. on the 15-hour Cathay Pacific flight.

Unable to free himself, the passenger summoned flight attendants. They apparently couldn't help.

Police said there were no apparent injuries on his finger and the man left the airport.
