Here’s how Kroll described the unexpected incident, which happened in the US:

After a night of partying, a man woke up in the middle of the night and used what he thought to be a restroom. In the morning, he discovered that it was not a restroom, and his laptop was a poor substitute for a toilet. Kroll Ontrack was able to recover 100% of the data.

The full list — including a spider-infested drive — is on the Kroll Ontrack site.
