For this three-year-old boy, climbing into a washing machine was easy and maybe even fun. Getting out proved impossible for the child and a real challenge for firemen who ended up destroying the washer in the process.

The story doesn't get into specifics of all the ways the firemen tried to extract the child without damaging the machine.

One thing is certain, not only was cutting apart the washer the last resort, but it also proved to be difficult to dismantle the washer without harming the child.

It's amazing the child could climb into the machine and then get so thoroughly stuck the fireman were forced to go as far as breaking apart the tub to finally extract the kid.

We hope the family was already in the market for a new washing machine. This one is now nothing more than scrap.
