A hapless Mets fan tried to make a diving catch when her gold tooth fell into a Citi Field toilet -- and got her arm stuck in the commode.And sorry folks, but there is no truth to the rumor that her tooth was located in Flushing Meadows Park.
The unidentified woman's bizarre Flushing adventure happened during last Wednesday's game against the Atlanta Braves, sources said yesterday.
It's unclear how long she was trapped screaming in the john, but stadium security guards and emergency medical personnel eventually showed up.
But they could not pry her loose on their own.
They called for back-up -- dialing up a worker from Cardoza Plumbing, the company that installed all 646 ultra-low-flow toilets at Citi Field.
He rushed to the scene from his company's Jamaica headquarters 7.2 miles away, the sources said.
The anxious victim, meanwhile, could only wait as the toilet continued to flush over her arm.
At one point, she became more entertaining than the game -- which the Mets lost 8-7 -- as fans gathered outside the bathroom near Section 338 to see the off-field action.
It's unclear if the toilet had to be destroyed to free her.
The woman did not recover her tooth, but was plenty relieved just to leave the bathroom.

Emphasis on the word crappy, without a doubt. Last night, a woman at CitiField lost a tooth in the pooper and her hand got stuck in a shithole. No, really. That's exactly what happened! Via the New York Post.
