A girl had to be rescued by firefighters during a Tinder date from hell – after getting stuck in a window while trying to retrieve her own POO.
The unnamed girl had been for a romantic meal at Nando’s with student Liam Smyth, 24, before they went back to his place for a nightcap.
But a bizarre chain of events unfolded after she went to the toilet and blocked the pan.
In panic, she picked up the stool and threw it out the window – but it fell down into a narrow gap between the neighbouring property.
She had no choice but to confess to Liam, who bravely helped lower her out of the bathroom window into the gap between the houses in an attempt to retrieve it.
But she got wedged upside down and eventually had to be rescued by firefighters who were called to Liam’s house in Bristol.
He has now launched a GoFundMe page to replace the broken window – which raised £300 in the first three hours.
Recounting the hilarious story, Liam – a postgraduate studying sociology at Bristol University – said: “I recently took a girl I met on tinder to Nandos.
“We had a lovely evening, and enjoyed each other’s company very much.
“After our meal, we repaired back to my house for a bottle of wine and a scientology documentary.
“About an hour in to Louis Theroux and chill, my date got up to use the toilet. She returned with a panicked look in her eye, and told me she had something to tell me.
“‘I went for a poo in your toilet’, she told me ‘and it would not flush.
“She continued, I don’t know why I did this, but I panicked. I reached into the toilet bowl, wrapped it in tissue paper, and threw it out of the window’.”
Liam went on: “I was understandably concerned, and told her we would go outside, bag up the offending poo in the garden, bin it, and pretend the whole sorry affair had never happened.
“Unfortunately, owing to a design quirk of my house, the toilet window does not in fact open to the garden.
“Instead, it opens into a narrow gap of about a foot and a half, separated from the outside world by another (non-opening) double glazed window.
“It was into this twilight zone that my date had thrown her poo.
“As can be seen in the picture, the inside window opens at the top, into the gap that is separated from the garden by a non-opening double-glazed window pane.
“Seeing only one solution, I messaged our house group-chat, and went upstairs to find a hammer and chisel to smash open the window.”
But Liam said his date had other ideas.
“Being an amateur gymnast, she was convinced that she could reach into the window and pull the poo out, using the tried and tested “inside out bag as glove” technique.
“Unfortunately she couldn’t reach. She climbed further in and had the same problem. Eventually I agreed to give her a boost up and into the window.
“She climbed in head first after her own turd, reached deeper into the window, bagged it up, and passed it out, over the top and back into the toilet from whence it came.
“She called out to me to help her climb out from the window, I grabbed her waist and I pulled. But she was stuck. Stuck fast.
“Try as we might, we could not remove her from the window. She was stuck fast, upside down in the gap.
“Unfortunately for my date, at this stage I could see only one way out of our predicament.
“She had been upside down in the window for around 15 minutes at this point, and I was starting to grow concerned for her health. I called the fire brigade.
“Bristol’s finest were on scene sirens blaring in a matter of minutes.
“Once they had composed themselves after surveying the scene in front of them, they set to work removing my date from the window using all of their special firemen hammers and tools.
“It took them about 15 minutes.
“Unfortunately, although they rescued my date unharmed from what must have been a rather unpleasant confined space to find yourself in, in the process they had to completely destroy the window with their special fire tools.
“I’m not complaining, they did what they had to do. Problem is, I’ve been quoted north of £300 to replace the window.
“As a postgraduate student, that is a significant chunk of my monthly budget (in fact, that is my monthly budget).”
Liam has turned to the internet for help to raise £300 to repair his broken window – a target which has now been exceeded.
He said: “If the window is not replaced my landlord may well kill me, so you would be literally helping to save a life.
“If by some miracle I manage to raise more money through this page than the cost of the window, any remainder will be split 50/50 between two charities:
“First, toilet twinning, a charity building and maintaining flushing toilets in the developing world. 60% of people worldwide don’t have access to a flushing toilet.
“Second, to the firefighter’s charity. The guys who came to the house were brilliant, took everything in good humour, and professional.”
Avon Fire and Rescue service confirmed they received a call on August 7 to Liam’s address.
A Fire service spokesman said: “We received a call at 22:41 to one female trapped between interior and exterior glass.
“Two crews were sent from Temple station and she was rescued using hand tools.”
Liam added that despite his date’s awkward ending he did see the woman again.
“We did go and meet for a drink to discuss setting up the crowdfunder,” he said.
“She’s a lovely girl – I’m not sure what’s going to happen – I’m really busy with my dissertation at the moment but I’d certainly be open to seeing her again.”
