Mubarak health scare started with fall in bathroom, lawyer says

The recent health crisis for former Egyptian ruler Hosni Mubarak started when he slipped in a prison bathroom, his attorney told CNN Thursday.

The ousted strongman hurt his neck and developed a blood clot after the fall in Tora prison, attorney Farid El Deeb said.

El Deeb said Mubarak was taken off life-support equipment and his health improved on Wednesday, a day after grim and contradictory news emerged over the 84-year-old man's health.

    I'll bet that this is the very reason Sweden is passing a law making it illegal for a man to stand while taking a leak.
    Too many men been slipping and hurting themselves due to wet floors.
