Man Trapped for 80 Hours in Portable
VIENNA (Reuters) - A man was trapped
for more than three sweltering days
in a portable toilet after fleeing
from muggers, a newspaper said on

The 63-year-old victim's ordeal began
on Wednesday when he was hit on the head
and robbed by two men in Vienna, according
to the Kurier.

The muggers then chased him through the
streets until he spied the mobile lavatory
and locked himself in.

But his assailants flipped the toilet over
with the door face down so that he could not
get out, the paper said.

``He screamed again and again for help
and banged against the walls, but nobody
heard him because it was on a very busy crossroads,'' a policeman was quoted as

His traumatic experience ended on Sunday
morning when the man managed to break
open one of the vents and flag down a
startled passer-by.

Kurier said temperatures inside the cramped plastic container must have soared well
above the 86 degrees Fahrenheit heat outside during his 80-hour ordeal.

A police spokeswoman told Reuters she
could not confirm the details of the man's
story as he was still very confused.
