Video: Trapped seven-year-old rescued from washing machine
When mom wasn't at home, seven-year-old Vladimir was challenged by his sister to climb into the washing machine. And the young boy from the Ukraine did exactly that. The only problem was that he couldn't get back out. Upon returning home an hour later, his mom almost had a heart attack when she saw Vladimir's pale legs sticking out of the washing drum:
With Vladimir completely stuck, his mother had to alert the emergency services. Though the men had never seen anything like it, they came up with a clever plan: young Vladimir was finally able to slide out once they had greased the sealing ring around the washing machine door. Visibly shaken by the experience, he needed comforting from his relieved mother. All's well that ends well!
