Ever heard the one about the exploding toilet?
Well, an Olney woman could tell you all about it, from firsthand experience.
Except that Nikita Fulton couldn’t be reached yesterday to detail her personal-injury lawsuit against the owners and operators of 1900 Market Street, or even to tell us to butt out.
Her attorney, Joseph J. Aversa, wouldn’t discuss the suit without Fulton’s OK, but we couldn’t simply flush this one down the hopper.
It happened on Oct. 30, 2007, according to the lawsuit, when a toilet the woman was using “exploded” in an eighth-floor ladies’ room at the 1900 Market Street building.
“Excess water pressure caused a toilet to explode causing plaintiff to be thrown from the bathroom stall, thereby causing her severe and permanent injuries,” the suit said.
