Stuck in a Washing Machine

Eleven-year-old Trinity Rhoades of South Jordan, Utah, played a game of hide and seek with her sister and cousins Tuesday. Trinity decided to hide in the washing machine, but once in, she couldn't get out.

Her sister and cousins tried remedies they recalled from cartoons. First they used butter to lubricate her legs. Then they tried using peanut butter. Then they resorted to ice, which only left the girl cold, so they then poured warm water over her. The children finally called Trinity's mom, who called emergency services. They found the girl not only stuck in a washing machine, but "wet, cold, and covered with condiments."

They eventually had to cut the dryer from the top of the combo unit, and Trinity was freed. She has some bruising on her legs, but is otherwise uninjured. -via Arbroath

I think that the pic and end of the article didn't load correctly on my ipad. That seems to happen pretty often, so tech fail = my bad. I would reply but I can't do that either, I'm sure it's an iOS compatibility issue which is again likely due to not updating.

Before reading the corresponding article I was wondering why it was so difficult to get out and why no one had thought to tip it on its side. The article makes a very important point the recap does not: it was a stacked machine with a dryer over it.
