The woman, Illyanna De La Keur, 40, yelled in terror after realizing she’d became fused to the toilet seat that had been covered in glue.
When a Banks County Sheriff’s Office deputy arrived at the retailer, a store manager reported that the woman “had gotten stuck on the toilet in the female public bathroom.”

According to the police report, emergency services workers subsequently “removed and obtained the toilet seat” from De La Keur’s “behind” but it took almost 20 minutes and a ton of WD-40 to free her “A”zz….

De La Keur remains couch-bound following the incident that occurred the day before Thanksgiving. She says not only were the injuries painful, but she’s understandably embarrassed by the whole incident.
In a video taken by De La Keur’s sister as paramedics worked to free her, you can hear her scream in pain. Crews used WD-40 to free her from the seat.
There were also other toilet seats in the facility that appeared to have been covered in the sticky substance as well.
Mary Dean, the Home Depot manager, told an investigator that she found a “brown paper sack” on the bathroom floor that contained a bottle of Loctite glue. Dean added that the other toilet seats seemed to have been covered in “what appeared to be some kind of glue.”
De La Keur said she will feel better if someone is caught. She also wants to know why they did it. De La Keur’s family is concerned about why she was removed from the seat in the Home Depot instead of at the hospital, stating ‘I mean… it worked. But it’s unsanitary.’

For the record, the Atlanta-based The Home Depot company has dealt previously with a similar toilet seat prank.
A Colorado Home Depot store was sued in 2005 after a man became glued to a toilet seat there. The shopper, a 57-year-old man, accused employees of ignoring his cries for help for about 15 minutes because they thought he was kidding.
According a sheriff’s spokesperson, the November 27 gluing incident remains an open investigation.
