A man in Amsterdam posted this image shortly after the incident, saying “feeling lucky”
A man in the Dutch city of Amsterdam has been injured after a pop-up public toilet sunk into the ground emerged unexpectedly.
The man was hit by a moped which was thrown up in the air as the so-called UriLift toilet suddenly rose up.
He is being treated in hospital for minor injuries.
The toilets are a feature of central areas of Amsterdam, emerging at night to deter people from urinating in the streets.
Witnesses nearby reported hearing a loud bang at the time of the accident.
One man tweeted an image of the aftermath, writing: “Literally just walked past this explosion about two minutes before. Feeling lucky.”
It is not clear what caused the incident.
Results of an investigation are due after the weekend.
