A three-year-old Chinese girl put her family and a crew of firefighters on spin cycle Friday when she became trapped inside the washing machine during afternoon playtime.

Chinese media officials said the domestic ordeal lasted over an hour. The child was given a bottle of milk for comfort as firefighters worked frantically to dismantle the machine around her.

It is not clear how exactly the child had gotten herself stuck or what lured her into the machine in the first place, but in the process, her legs had become lodged inside the drum.
