When an elderly woman became trapped in a laundry basket, it could have ruined Mother’s Day.
Happily, though, a call to the fire service was enough to save the day.
After she got stuck inside the basket in her home in the Selby area, her carer called police, who contacted the fire station.
North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson took up the story on Twitter: “Selby crew responded to a police request to assist with an elderly Mum who had fallen into a laundry basket and become trapped.
“Bolt cutters used to open locked door for her carer outside. Female’s predicament ironed out and comfort given, with Mum freed for lunch with daughter.”
Happy Mother’s Day, everyone!
