LANGFANG, China (NBC/APTN) — Firefighters in northern China rescued a 2-year-old boy from a washing machine this week.
The child’s mother said she found him crying and trapped inside the washing machine when she went to wash clothes.
The boy had reportedly long-been curious about the machine.
Video from China Central TV showed the child’s parents holding him as he screamed while firefighters tried to free him.
They used tools to cut open the washing machine and free the boy within about 20 minutes.
