BALTIMORE (AP) — A Baltimore woman has filed a lawsuit against the Baltimore mayor, city council and two city contractors after she said she was hurt when her toilet exploded in 2014.

Angela Wright filed the lawsuit in Baltimore City Circuit Court in February. She says she was using her bathroom toilet when it backed up and blew her off the seat. The lawsuit states she was covered in feces and suffered physical injuries.

The lawsuit names the city council, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and contractors Spiniello Companies Inc. and Heitkamp Inc.

Wright’s attorney Louis Glick says they will about $225,000.

Representatives from Heitkamp Inc. and Spiniello Companies Inc. did not immediately respond to requests for comment from news agencies. Howard Libit, a spokesman for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, did not comment citing pending litigation.

The trial has not been scheduled.
