As comfortable as we can sometimes feel when we're using the bathroom, it's also the place where we're potentially at our most vulnerable when we think about it.
Although this is sometimes used for comedic effect in movies, it's very easy to become acutely aware of the disadvantage you're at in the event that something or someone intrudes while you're indisposed.
For me, this became apparent when I accidentally walked in on someone whose bathroom stall apparently had a broken lock. He didn't say anything to me but I'll never forget how wide and anxious his eyes looked in that moment.
But while my story isn't terribly uncommon, one Alaska woman found herself in a much more extreme situation that's about as rare as it gets.
