A Washington worker recently found himself on the move -- while using a portable toilet.

According to a story in the Tri-City (Wash.) Herald, a forklift operator picked up a portable toilet to move it, but was unaware that somebody was inside. The door of the portable toilet was against the forklift's loading rack so the worker couldn't get out, according to the report.

The portable toilet, which was 12 to 18 inches off the ground, was moved about 15 feet before the forklift driver realized somebody was inside, according to the report.
