Woman remains on toilet for two years
A woman refused to leave her boyfriend’s toilet for two years, sitting there so long that her skin had grown around the seat, authorities said.
Pam Babcock, 35, of Ness City, Kan., simply refused to leave the bathroom, according to her 36-year-old boyfriend, Kody McFarren. McFerren traced Babcock's mental condition to childhood trauma. Ness City Sheriff Bryan Whipple wants McFarren to be charged with mistreatment of a dependent adult.
McFerren called police on Feb. 27 to report that there was something wrong with his girlfriend. Officials had to pry the toilet seat off with a crowbar to transfer Babcock to the hospital, where medical professionals removed the seat from her body.
A nerve-damaging infection caused Babcock to lose feeling in her legs. Doctors told McFerren she could end up in a wheelchair.
