recovering item flushed down toilet?

I read in the news that a severed body part size of a finger flushed down the toilet was recovered later by pulling the toilet.
How is this possible? When the toilet is flushed, doesn't everything goes down the drain and into the sewer system?

It's possible to catch a seed in your appendix also, but don't depend upon it. Same with the finger in the toilet and other traps out to the main line. Everything doesn't go down at the same time with one flush. It was probably only flushed a single time and they were lucky to find it, luckier than the person that lost it at least.

If "it" was the size of a finger, then he wouldn't miss it!
