A young boy had to be rescued by firefighters after he got himself stuck in a washing machine in China.


You should never lose sight of the small children around the house. In seconds they may be in trouble.

This little 4-year-old was curious and in an oversight of the mother ended up stuck inside a washing machine. As reported by the Upsocl portal, the firefighters had to intervene using some tools to get the kid out of the device.

When his mother found him, only his head and arms were outside the machine. She tried to pull the little boy out several times, but she couldn’t get him out. In the end, the worried woman had to call the local firefighting department for help.

A video of the meticulous rescue operation shows the boy's torso trapped in the drum, leaving his head and hands sticking out of the machine. Limited by the small rescue space, firefighters had to use a saw to carefully cut through the washing machine drum.


The incident occurred in eastern China, in Zibo, Shandong Province. The mother was busy doing her chores in another room when she lost eye contact with her son. Suddenly, she heard the baby's desperate cry and ran to see what was happening
