Girl Gets Stuck in Washing Machine While Playing Hide and Seek

A game of hide-and-seek ended with a 911 call Thursday, as a Utah girl got stuck in a washing machine she used as her hiding spot, KSTU reports.

The girl was found by her aunt, who was home at the time, and tried to pull the girl out with no success. After using butter, peanut butter, and ice, as lubricants yielded no results, the mother called 911.

Emergency crews were eventually able to relieve the panicked child from her predicament.

“peanut butter”

Super Chunky is just not going to work in these situations.

Seems like a setting of COLD and Delicate might have freed her. :)

Everybody knows that butter is only good for shaving.

Watch out for Newman if you’ve been sauteed in the Sun.

The only thing that could have made it even more agitating would have been the ‘on’ button . . .

Glad she was found. Sometimes that happens with kids playing in refrigerators stored in basements. She wont be doing that again.

Did they think putting ice on her was going to shrink her?

LOL. Usually it's the hot setting that does it.

People were more private back then, when you grew up. The immediate family would know about little sister’s mishap, Grandma might know also, months, and months later, but after all the healing had taken place. That way Grandma would not go into overdrive with worry and casting blame.

They should have added fabric softener at the rinse cycle.

Why should they have tried soaking her in Tide?

Because it’s too cold to soak her out Tide!

My sister and I used to take turns riding in the dryer, one of us would climb in, then turn it on.

My daughters used to use the dryer as a clubhouse, until we caught them.

They were soooo cute. They must have been really small. They sat on opposite sides, facing each other, chit chatting and giggling.

I was once the expert witness in a murder investigation where the weapon was a clothes dryer.

Hide and seek.

Kid brother hid in the dryer, big bro planted his size 12 kicks on the door and hit start. Drum did not rotate due to worn drive belt. Back wall of dryer hit 450 within 30 seconds, air temp went to 550 within one minute.

Yeah, your kid brother was screaming because he was scared.

Plea bargained out to manslaughter or some such. I just did the investigation for the S.O. and I have to admit being amazed at the actual data.

As a very young child years ago I got my head stuck in an angel-food cake tin. My mom likes to tell the story. She didn’t know what to do - so called her older sister. The sister’s first response was “Grab your camera and take a picture!”

She then drove over and together with a can of Crisco they got the thing off my head.

You're right. Let that be a lesson to young parents. Keep your cell phones handy!
