A little girl who was using a Minnie Mouse toilet seat, got her head stuck in it and firefighters were called to free her.

The incident unfolded on Tuesday, when the parents of 2-year-old Teagan Culverhouse, brought home the new toilet training seat.

While playing with it, she pulled the toilet seat down over her head and could not get it back out. Her parents, David and Emily, struggled to free her by using butter, olive oil and dishwasher soap.

After all their efforts failed, they dragged the embarrassed child down the street, knocking on doors to ask residents if they had any cutting devices.

Eventually, they called firefighters, who came to their home in Frome, Somerset, and freed the girl from her unwanted necklace.

The seat cost the couple 9 pounds (1 pound = $1.60) and a lot of heartache.

A spokesperson for the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said: “The girl was not in danger, but was very happy to be freed from the toilet seat.”
