Firefighters in China respond to an urgent call.
This little toddler is in deep trouble -- trapped from the waist down in a washing machine in the eastern Shangdong Province.
The mother protects her as rescuers saw through the plastic and metal surrounding the three-year-old.
Chinese television said firefighters distracted the girl with candies as they pried her free.
Her mother says she often plays in the washing machine - but hopefully not any more.....
Finally back in her mother's arms, the grateful toddler says "thank you."
