    Man freed after 100 hours trapped in a lavatory

    LONDON (Reuters) - A retired Scottish school teacher was recovering on Monday after spending nearly four days trapped inside a men's toilet with no food or mobile phone.

    David Leggat was locked inside the bathroom at a lawn bowling club near the Scottish city of Aberdeen after the door jammed and the handle on the outside fell off.

    The 55-year-old kept warm by dipping his feet in hot water but only managed to get about three hours' sleep a night in the freezing temperatures, the local Evening Express newspaper reported.

    He was rescued when the cleaner at the club, which is little used in winter, turned up to collect her cleaning equipment.

    Leggat said a survival course he had once done had helped him endure his captivity. The cleaning lady said he looked shaken and grey when he emerged. Leggat was stoical.

    "At least there was a toilet to use," he said. "The only thing I regret is not getting trapped behind the bar.";_ylt=AqpV.0tn2d6AhVzuTkES26EuQE4F

    Heh, at least he has a sense of humor about it.

    Trust me, I'm a doctor.
