VIENNA — An Austrian man was trapped for more than three sweltering days in a portable toilet after fleeing from muggers, a newspaper said on Tuesday.

The 63-year-old victim's ordeal began on Wednesday when he was hit on the head and robbed by two men in Vienna, according to the Kurier.

The muggers then chased him through the streets until he spied the mobile lavatory and locked himself in.

But his assailants flipped the toilet over with the door face down so that he could not get out, the paper said.

His traumatic experience ended on Sunday morning when the man managed to break open one of the vents and flag down a startled passer-by.
