Poo Girl is the name given to a girl who fell into the Yellow Bubble toilets at Leeds Festival 2009.
She apparently dropped her handbag, containing £400 (clearly drug money) and an iPhone into a long drop toilet. Bear in mind that long drop toilets are little more than covered cesspits so therefore her bag fell into what was basically 3 or so days worth of raw sewerage from literally thousands of people.
Rather than call for help, and to get an assistant to use a long pole to fish her bag out of the quagmire, she decided to try to reach in and attempt to reclaim her bag herself. This was on so many levels a preposterously stupid thing to do as the toilets are constantly manned and the assistants have the tools to get personal items out of the toilets, and she was coming into contact with RAW sewerage which probably contained hazardous levels of bacteria!
Probably unsuprisingly she ended up slipping in and getting stuck by her hips, with the whole of her upper body and arms dangling down towards the horrific mess below. She ended up having to get rescued by Firemen while many people looked on and rightfully mocked her for her stupidity.
She was sent to hospital for checks, but ended up returning to try and enjoy the remainder of the festival.
In the aftermath of this event many groups on the social networking site Facebook have sprung up in honour of an event and individual which will almost certainly be added to the ever growing repertoire of amazing Leeds Festival stories, Legends and Myths, which include, among others the infamous 'Pop up Pirate' and the girl who was pooed on by a drunk man after failing to lock a toilet door!
Both The Sun and Sky News reported on the event, providing fully archived evidence of the historic event!
