A woman in the United Kingdom, screamed out in panic after getting trapped inside a smelly portable toilet during a beer festival.

The incident unfolded on Saturday, during the Abbfest in Newton Abbot.

The young woman, who was not identified, decided to attend the festival in order to enjoy the beer, food and music. At some point, she had to use the bathroom.

At first, she was reluctant to use one of the portable toilets due to the bad smell, but she finally went into one as she could not hold herself back any longer.

She locked the door, and after several seconds, she felt the portable toilet being lifted from the ground. She immediately began to panic and yelled for help.

Luckily, her screams were heard and the toilet was placed back on the ground. The woman quickly exited the toilet, and was unharmed.

She laughed with the crew and left the scene.

David Munden, who is the chairman of Abbfest, said that the portable toilet had to be moved in order to allow an ambulance to attend an emergency.

The operator of the forklift knocked on the doors of the portable toilets, but no one answered. However, when the woman screamed, the operator immediately lowered the portable toilet back to the ground.
