A woman was taken to the hospital Monday with serious but non-life-threatening injuries after a toilet exploded in a federal government building in Washington. Employees in the GSA regional office were sent a memo warning them to not use the restrooms, WUSA reported.

"DO NOT flush toilets or use any domestic water," WUSA quoted the memo as saying. "Due to a mechanical failure, there is high air pressure in the domestic water system that resulted in damage to toilets. The engineering staff is working to correct the issue.
