Commuter gets arm stuck in Metro-North train toilet

A 41-year-old Bronx commuter on a Metro-North train experienced a cruel twist of fate on Wednesday night, when his arm got stuck in a train toilet as he tried to retrieve his dropped cell phone.Rescuers were called to the scene when the train stopped at the Fordham station, and were forced to use a blowtorch to cut the commode open and free the man's arm from the murky depths.The toilet itself was totally destroyed, and the MTA has hinted that it may seek damages for toilet repairs from the passenger.
