The Year of the Rooster continues to be a stressful one for Chinese parents with one little girl in Guiyang getting caught in the evil clutches of her household washing machine.
The 6-year-old girl climbed into the washing machine at around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday night while playing and quickly realized that she couldn’t get herself back out again.
Her parents called emergency services and seven firefighters arrived swiftly to rescue the girl. But everything they tried failed, so she’ll have to live like this for the rest of her life.
Just kidding. Though it took the firefighters about an hour of hard work, they were eventually able to cut through the washing machine drum with power tools and release the girl from her prison.
In China, washing machines are known for trying to snatch up unattended children. While it may a terrifying experience for the kids, it does at least make for some pretty memorable photos for the family scrapbook.
Oh, and be careful. Sometimes the washing machines even go after full-grown adults.
