Suit: Rail work caused toilet explosion
A Seattle man claims in his suit against transit authorities that a toilet he was inspecting exploded as a result of work being performed on a light rail line.
Edmond Okolie said in his King County Superior Court suit that a toilet at an adult care facility exploded in November 2006 while he was inspecting it, knocking him to the ground and covering him in raw sewage, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported Wednesday.
The suit is seeking unspecified compensation. Sound Transit has not yet filed a response.
