Incident Number: 123167
In attendance: 1 X Great Baddow

A toddler was freed by firefighters after her leg got trapped in her cot.
Crews were called to Kingston Crescent, Chelmsford, today at 8.28am.
Paramedics were already on the scene and had lubricated the girl’s leg but she was still stuck fast.
Watch Manager Rob Sherwin said: “We moved her parents’ bed out of the way to give ourselves more room.
“I had a little chat with the girl and she was fine. Her mum held her head and I rotated her body and her knee slid out of the bars.
“To see the relief on her mum’s face is what makes the job special.”

The girl was freed at 8.55am.
