Another day, another Chinese kid trapped in a washing machine.
On Monday, a three-year-old boy in Anshun city, Guizhou province was playing by himself at a local snack shop when he climbed into a washing machine and got stuck.
Firefighters soon arrived to get the poor kid out, using a giant pair of pliers to pull the washing machine apart.
After he was freed, the boy was rushed to the hospital where doctors found no serious injuries.
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.
