"It's full of sick"

I was in the English movie theatre in my area in Munich today and had to stop at the ladies room. One of the stalls was not being used, and when I asked why, a lady answered "It's full of sick". Now I don't know if she was a native German or English speaker, because I didnt' catch the accent out of those few words and she didn't say anything more. Although I've never heard this expression before (while living in the US), I knew immediately what she meant. I probably would have said "It's full of throw-up" or even "It's full of puke", though.

Is this a common expression elsewhere?

Sorry for the not so tasteful topic. =)
