(Scroll down for video) Doctors and nurses asked the hospital maintenance worker for help when they were unable to remove a fidget spinner that was stuck on a boy’s finger.

Cassie Rhodes of Tempe, Arizona, said that she bought the fidget spinner for her 11-year-old son Sam.

Sam said that it was easy to push the fidget spinner onto his finger, but when he tried to take it off, it got stuck. Cassie tried to remove the fidget spinner with soap and oil, but they did not work.

The mother took her son to the hospital, where doctors tried to cut off the fidget spinner with a ring cutter, but it did not work.

Cassie said that the ring cutter did not even make a scratch on the toy. Hospital workers apologized to the mother and told her that they could not help her.

She then took her son to the Cardon Children’s Medical Center.

After doctors failed to cut off the fidget spinner, the nurse called in the hospital maintenance worker, Greg Earhart.

Earhart used a saw with fiberglass blades to cut off the toy. The maintenance worker said that four blades were destroyed before he was able to cut off the fidget spinner.

Sam was extremely happy that the fidget spinner was off his finger as he thought it would remain stuck for the rest of his life.
