HEFEI - Here's why it's not wise to squat on a sitting toilet.

A man who visited the restroom while waiting for a flight at Hefei Xinqiao International Airport in Anhui province was injured when he attempted to squat on the toilet bowl.

Anhui News reported that his companion received a call for help and found the man lying on the floor, his buttocks bleeding and the toilet bowl crushed to pieces.
