Boy, 7, rescued from washing machine after getting stuck while playing hide and seek (video)
A 7-year-old boy got stuck in a washing machine while playing hide and seek with his sister.
The boy, whose name has not been released, was playing in the family’s flat in the city of Kharkov in eastern Ukraine. He crawled into the drum of the washing machine to hide but couldn’t get out again so he began screaming for help.
When none of his family was able to pull him out of the washing machine, they called emergency services for help. Four firefighters arrived and rescued the child by slathering his body in sunflower oil which helped him slide out unassisted.
