Naked man rescued from appliance
January 7 , 2014
This Australian man wanted to surprise his girlfriend by hiding naked in a washing machine on Saturday.
The surprise didn't go very well since police, paramedics, firefighters as well as a search-and-rescue team had to come to his aid when he got stuck inside the appliance.
The rescuers had to use olive oil as a lubricant for 20 minutes while extracting him out and "the gentleman was very embarrassed," a sergeant said.
Hide-and-seek still remains a game for children. Reports suggest that an 11-year-old girl in Utah got stuck inside a washer and dryer while playing the game on New Year's Eve. Her cousins and sister attempted to rescue her using lubricants and oil but crews eventually arrived and extracted the girl.
