Three males were rescued by firefighters after they became stuck in a tumble dryer in Essex.
Essex-based firefighters responded to a derelict laundry site in Bower Hill, Epping, at around 18:40 hours on Friday.
When firefighters arrived on the scene, they were met with the sight of three teenagers who had become stuck in the industrial-sized dryer.
Reports are that two of the males had become completely stuck in the drum of the drier whilst the third had managed to get his ankle stuck.
As well as the fire & rescue service, Essex Police, HEMs and East of England Ambulance Service Hazardous Area Response Team made their way to the call.
After using heavy-duty cutting equipment, the teenagers were freed before being left in the care of paramedics.
Watch manager Glenn Jackson said in a statement:
“It was a difficult site to access, and we had to carry a lot of heavy equipment a large distance from the appliances to the tumble dryer and then use our expertise to free the men safely.
“We used a range of equipment to free the casualty’s ankles and allow him to crawl into the tumble dryer.
“The HEMS team gave him pain relief and we then managed to move the door, again using a range of equipment, so the men could crawl out.”
