The 2014 Sochi Paralympics are set to kick off on Friday evening and you’d think most of the problems encountered during the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics would have been resolved.

Apparently not.

Seemingly becoming a right of passage in Sochi, Team USA sled hockey goalie Steve Cash found himself locked in a Russian bathroom.

Sound familiar?

Cash documented his struggle on Twitter, hoping he’d get some aid sent his way.

Thankfully his Tweets (and I’m assuming his phone calls) brought reinforcements to assist in his bathroom breakout:

Unlike the aforementioned Johnny Quinn situation, no bathroom doors were busted through in the process as Cash’s Team USA teammates were able to unlock the door by removing the handle.

Now hopefully Cash will do what he can to stay out of the Sochi elevators as Quinn, after busting through his bathroom door, then found himself locked in a Sochi elevator.

Sounds like a pleasant destination – you know – when you’re not trapped in a 8×8 box of death.

H/T Deadspin
