By Agency - Rescuers were forced to pull out heavy equipment to free a Chinese boy trapped in a washing machine. Three-year-old Chaofan became stuck in the appliance while playing hide-and-seek with his mother in their Taiyuan home.
Chaofan was wedged up to his neck inside the machine's narrow drum. Firefighters worked for more than an hour to free the child, using a circular saw to carefully crack open the drum without harming him.
Chaofan was rescued without injury.
