Woman Gets Herself Stuck In Kids' Toy Car, Has To Be Cut Out With Bread Knife

A woman managed to get herself completely stuck in a kid's toy car - and was only freed after someone cut her out of it using a bread knife.

Look, some of us may have found ourselves in some pretty sticky situations - usually involving a dangerous combination of our own morbid curiosity and a few beers - so we can perhaps relate to 34-year-old Zoe Archibald, who found herself wedged into a red and yellow Little Tikes car.

Zoe had clambered into the toy car, which belonged to her one-year-old cousin, as a joke.

However, she was unable to wriggle free and ended up being trapped in there for an hour before dad Kevin came to the rescue with a bread knife, sawing through the plastic chassis to free her.

Her nephew Matthew Shepherd-Bull, 26, who filmed her release, said: "There was no way she could get herself out.

"She was in there for an hour. We had to cut the back off the car to get her out.

RSPCA And Firefighters Called After Fox Gets Head Stuck In Tyre

"No matter what we did she wasn't able to get out. Everyone found it funny, even Zoe.

"She was a bit panicked but mainly found it funny. It was just a joke.

"Her dad had to cut her out. The best thing we could find was a bread knife. It took about 15 minutes to cut through the plastic."

Zoe, from Brechin in Angus, Scotland, trapped herself in the car while at a family gathering on Friday 7 June, having joked about how she thought she could fit into the tiny plastic car.

Turns out it wasn't as easy as she first thought. Having realised she couldn't climb in, the car was placed over her head - which was when it got jammed around her midriff.

In the video, you can see poor Zoe stumbling around with the car stuck on her back, the roof jammed into the back of her neck.

I really hope someone's thought about replacing the car for Zoe's cousin - I'd be well annoyed if someone randomly cut through my toys with a bread knife, especially if it was the Little Tikes red and yellow car, which is an absolute classic.

Plus, it probably goes without saying, but perhaps don't try this one at home...
