11-Year Old Girl Gets Stuck in Washing Machine
(KUTV) An 11 year old South Jordan Girl found herself in a "delicate," situation yesterday during a friendly game of hide and seek with her cousins, the girl, decided that the stackable washer and dryer would be the best place to tuck away during the game. Unfortunately moments after dipping into the washer portion of the contraption, Trinity found herself stuck. She called her cousins and sister for help. The kids, not being certified rescue experts, did what kids do, they tried to lube the girl up with butter, then peanut butter. When that didn't work, they thought perhaps ice cubes might somehow do the trick. All that did is make Trinity cold, so the kids decided to douse the girl with warm water.
The kids eventually called her mother, who instantly called 911. When rescuers arrived, they found Trinity, wet, cold, and covered with condiments. Crews attempted to remove the agitator from the washer, and thought they might have to saw right into the machine. Eventually rescuers removed the top portion of the stackable machine and Trinity was able to wiggle her way out. Tonight she does have some bruising to her legs and ankles, but her mother says, she is mostly just embarrassed.
