The girl of Utah, was playing hide and seek with her cousins when she decided to use the washing machine as her hiding place.

It was indeed a great hiding place, as no one was able to find her.

After a while, she decided it was time to get out of the washer.

However, as she tried to get out, she was unable to do so. She was stuck.

The girl cried out for help and her cousins tried to rescue her.

They used butter, peanut butter and ice, but were unable to free her, so they called 911.

Firefighters arrived on the scene with a variety of tools to rescue the girl.

However, they first had to remove the stackable dryer and then they were able to cut the washing machine to rescue the 11-year-old.

Firefighters who rescued the girl, said that she squeezed into a tight spot causing her legs to become temporarily paralyzed, but she did not suffer any long-term damage.

More than anything, the girl suffered from shame, therefore, she asked that her identity not be revealed.
