At around 1pm yesterday (May 28), Kusoldharm rescue workers received a report that a student at Phuket Rajabhat University had been involved in an accident in one of the facility’s toilets resulting in her sustaining a laceration to her leg.

Rescue workers arrived at the scene, inside the teacher’s toilets of Building 13, to find a student, named only as Ms A, with a 5cm long wound on her leg and blood on the floor.

Rescue workers administered first aid before transferring Ms A to hospital.

Rescue workers reported that there was a broken toilet lying on the floor along with several broken tiles.

A friend of Ms A told rescue workers that she found Ms A lying on the floor with the wound to her leg.

“I think that she might have squatted or stood on the toilet and this caused toilet to tip over.”

Rescue workers confirmed that they would speak to Ms A again to find out exactly what happened.

Pauly44/Kurt...Basic common sense and science should tell you otherwise. If you use the slip test wet and dry you will find the co-efficiency is lower when wet, thus, if you put water on anything it becomes slippery. But then again a bed of nails probably wouldn't become slippery because water wouldn't remain on the sharp point. Best come up with an explanation as to why motor vehicles aquaplane. However, from comments after reported accidents in the rain, it is anything but the rain as being a causal factor.

Yep, yet another ignorant comment notched up by Joe 12, there are many many surfaces that don't get slippery when wet, proof he thinks he knows everything.

For Jor12/Joe12: My bathroom floors are with texture, throw water over it, and they still not slippery. 
Don't talk slippery nonsense to safe your pride.

Eagle: this story is very educational. People, specially students, should know how to behave/handle toilet matters.
For the sake of avoiding getting hurt and hygienic matters.
It has nothing to do with 'high moral western standards'.
Do not try to pull this happening into a cultural 'mode' issue.
That I call swerving.
If the girl didn't like the publicity she could have told so.
And the school director allowed it. ( to safe his other toilets)
She is a educated thai student, should have known better, right?
Anyway, who of us in life not make mistakes?
We learn of it, no reason to feel embarrassed.

We wish her good recovery and hope plastic surgery can minimize the visible damage as it is a lady's leg.

Christy...put water on anything it becomes slippery.

@ Sir Burr. Not understand your question. On a squat toilet you not sit.
On a normal toilet you sit, with your feet on the floor. Not to stand or squat on it.
Use a squat toilet if you want to stand/squat.

Standing/squatting on a normal toilet is not only unhygienic 
for other users, but dangerous as the toilet can tip over.
As written here. 
It is not the first this happens. Mostly with unpleasant outcome.

Sir Burr, No but they might squat on a sit toilet and I have seen signs forbidding that. 

Jor12, Disagree. The tile in 12 or so nations I've been in - or lived was always slightly textured so as to NOT be slippery.
 Seems this culture just cherishes accidents, always good for a giggle which is a frequent response I've observed.

You think anyone would sit on a squat toilet?

Jor12 | 30 May 2017 - 11:59:11

Christy...because it's a normal floor covering used everywhere in the world - since Roman times. What do you want? Carpet? Just let them know.

What is the purpose of the Thai propensity for slick floor tiling that is like ice when wet? Easier to clean or it "looks" better ? 

I slipped in Thalang hospital bathroom once and got a small scrape that then became a raging infection that took weeks to heal.

Kurt...LOL. Good lord, signs? how about a sign to be careful on tiles when walking? or watch is closed.
