Little Boy Gets Toilet Seat Stuck On His Head, Has To Be Rescued With Disc Cutter
So, when a Watch Manager from Avon Fire and Rescue found his son's head had become stuck in a toilet seat, he took it in his stride.
The boy had somehow managed to get his head wedged into the hole in a blue potty-training seat - designed to fit onto a toilet.
In photos shared by the service, you can see the little fella looking slightly apprehensive with his face behind a 'home-made' bit of PPE (AKA: a plastic lid) as well as some protective safety googles, which seemed to do the trick.
The man had to use a Dremal spinning disc cutter to free the boy.
Temple Fire Station, Bristol, with the caption: "The work never stops!
"One of our Watch Managers had to respond to an incident involving his young boy and a toilet seat!
"Thank fully he was released safely, all whilst using appropriate PPE! Good work! Please don't try this at home, call the professionals."
Tweeting in response to the post, the boy's dad/rescuer wrote: "Only my son would do this..." Before tweeting at Dremel to thank the firm for the creating the tool that helped set him free.
In the shots taken after his release the adorable little boy doesn't look particularly bothered by the whole thing and appears to be happy enough.
Rescues are all in a day's work for firefighters and, usually, people are grateful for their efforts. However, last August a foul-mouthed parrot told her would-be rescuers where to go, using some pretty colourful language.
Jessie, a yellow and blue Macaw, was stuck on the roof of a house in Edmonton, North London, for around three days, prompting someone to call out the London Fire Brigade.
The fire volunteer climbed a ladder, with a bowl of food in hand, only to be told to 'fuck off', by the bird.
LFB Watch Manager, who has the ornithologically apt name of Chris Swallow, said: "Jessie had been on the same roof for three days and there were concerns that she may be injured which is why she hadn't come down.
"We then discovered that she had a bit of a foul mouth and kept swearing, much to our amusement."
To add insult to injury, Jessie then flew off to another rooftop then to a tree, before eventually flying back to her owner.
