A Department of Natural Resources sergeant stands in the doorway of an outhouse after a woman became trapped in the toilet after attempting to retrieve her Apple Watch, Tuesday, at Dixon Lake in Bagley Township, Mich.

BAGLEY TOWNSHIP, Mich. >> A woman was rescued Tuesday from an outhouse toilet in northern Michigan after she climbed in to retrieve her Apple Watch and became trapped.

The woman, whose name was not released, lowered herself inside the toilet after dropping the watch at the Department of Natural Resources boat launch at Dixon Lake in Otsego County’s Bagley Township, state police said today in a release.

First responders were called when the woman was heard yelling for help. The toilet was removed and a strap was used to haul the woman out.

“If you lose an item in an outhouse toilet, do not attempt to venture inside the containment area. Serious injury may occur,” state police said in the release.

The state police did not say Wednesday if the woman was injured or if the watch was recovered.

Bagley Township is about 240 miles northwest of Detroit.
