Toilet Explodes at GSA Headquarters

A toilet explosion at the GSA headquarters in Washington, D.C., left one employee seriously injured Monday. “DO NOT flush toilets or use any domestic water,” an internal memo stated. “Due to a mechanical failure, there is high air pressure in the domestic water system that resulted in damage to toilets.” The federal agency was keeping a lid on exactly what happened until the story spread across Twitter, prompting the GSA’s spokesperson to reissue a statement confirming that the toilets were functioning again.
