A man shared on TikTok that he was locked inside a condominium toilet at Oxley Residences for about one and a half hours, resulting in him panicking inside the toilet and missing an event that he was supposed to attend.
However, that wasn’t even the end of his nightmare; he claimed that a security personnel later video called him and insisted that he had to pay for the broken lock.
TikTok user @qmaojunyong, shared the video that he took from inside the locked toilet while he was trapped inside.
The incident happened on 26 March at about 12.30pm.
He said that it was really hot and stuffy inside at the time, and he tried unsuccessfully to shout for help and his phone couldn’t get a signal.
Starting panicking after 30 minutes
The 32-year-old, who works as an events planner and part time actor, said that he wasn’t scared initially, but after trying to unlock the door for about 30 minutes with no avail, he started to panic because the toilet was very quiet and he had no reception inside.
He was seen drenched in sweat and panting heavily as he tried to break the lock using a pole and a balloon pump that he had on him at the time.
The door handle managed to come off but the lock remained jammed, still trapping him inside.
Exasperated, he said in the video that his event (that he was supposed to attend) had started 15 minutes ago and he doesn’t know how long he can last inside the toilet.
He then wrote the word “help” on a piece of tape before slipping it under the door, to get the attention of anyone who might be passing by.
He was eventually rescued and freed from the toilet, and his client was understanding of his situation.
Security wants payment for broken door
However, he later allegedly received a video call from the security of the condominium saying that he had to pay for the damaged toilet door lock.
The man then told the security that it was a life or death situation and that asking him to pay up is not the right thing to do.
He added that he doesn’t know how much he needs to pay for the lock but says he hope they will take pity on him.
- Security and management might be different.. Email a complaint to the management with yr situation and claim them for not able to attend your event…
- Pay then sue them back for faulty facilities that cause personal distress.
- Wa shag. That’s not right for them to ask you pay tho. When clearly it’s due to their fault dooor
- The Condo Mgmt should takes responsibility and don’t get this innocent chap to pay. He already suffered enough in the toilet. The lock contractor..
- sue the condo management for stress & unable to perform at the event….
I was locked in toilet for 1 and half hr!!! Management still ask me to pay for the broken lock :((♬ original sound – Q毛骏勇
