Children in wading pools have sat on the drainage pipe that unfortunately did not have a grate over it. The suction on the child's bottom entrapped him until someone could turn the circulating pump off. Horribly, the suction tore a hole in the child's rectum. His small bowel was sucked through the hole in the rectal wall, down the rectal lumen and out through the anus.How much suction had the pump created?

It's probably better to refer to the performance properties of the pump itself, rather than try to figure it out from the vastly more complicated properties of human internal organs.
