I remember hearing about an incident that happened aboard a Connie some (read many) years ago: A lady sat on a lav toilet in which the outside servicing plug had not been secured properly. The aircraft had a cabin pressure leak through the opening and when she sat down, she effectively sealed sealed the leak. Of course, she couldn't get up off the toilet. The flight engineer figured out the problem (amid much embarrasment) and the aircraft had to be descended and depressurized to free her recalcitrant posterior.
