Firefighters were called out to rescue an 18-year-old woman from a washing machine after she got stuck whilst playing hide-and-seek!

Amari Dancy was keeping her young cousins entertained during lockdown with the classic game when she decided to hop into the clothes washer in a bid to conceal herself. Imagination quickly turned to panic because Amari soon realised she couldn’t actually get back out and was in fact well and truly stuck there.

According to the MailOnline, firefighters from the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue arrived at the home, in Woodbridge, Virginia, shortly before 11 pm on 19 April. Four of the members of fire service staff that were in attendance were stood with Amari wearing gloves and face masks with one asking ‘can you wiggle your toes?’.

Fortunately, they were able to remove the top of the large appliance which created enough room to pull the teen out safely although it looked extremely painful towards the end as you can hear Amari cry out in pain.
