TGIF for the Toilet Snorkel

"Fresh-air breathing device and method"
William O. Holmes of Belmont California USA

ABSTRACT: The recent rash of fires in high-rise hotels and deaths occasioned thereby has given rise to the need for a breathing device and method for supplying a hotel guest and/or fireman with fresh air until he can be rescued. The device and method of this invention provide for the insertion of a breathing tube through the water trap of a toilet to expose an open end thereof to fresh air from a vent pipe connected to a sewer line of the toilet, to enable the user to breathe fresh air through the tube.

Thank Goodness It's Friday (the 13th),
