All right guys, time to be childish and immature! Normally we strive to keep it clean here at HireAHelper, but when a story like this comes along we simply have to make an exception.
The incident happened on the Cromwell-Clyde Rd about 6km from Cromwell about 1.40pm.
The health and safety manager for the company transporting the portaloo, who preferred not be named, said one of three empty portaloos fell from the truck and bounced into a rental car following behind.
The windscreen was smashed but the two occupants were uninjured, she said.
Luckily, this had a happy ending.
“The portaloos were empty. There was no faecal matter,” she said.
A police spokeswoman confirmed they were incorrect with initial reports.
“There wasn’t any mess that required the Fire Service to clean up,” she said.
True, this could have been a lot messier than it was. Still, this incident in New Zealand deserves a few good comments. So feel free to let one rip! (In the comments section below, we mean.)
