A game of hide-and-seek for a Virginia family took an awkward turn when an 18-year-old girl had to be rescued by the fire department after getting stuck inside a washing machine.
Amari Dancy chose the unconventional hiding spot while playing with her younger relatives last Sunday in their Woodbridge, Virginia home, according to NBC News.
“We already had hid underneath the bed, in the closet, and we couldn’t go down into the basement,” Dancy told the outlet.
“So, I was like ‘Oh, OK, let’s just hide in the washer machine.”
Dancy’s younger cousin found her and notified the adults in the house, who called 911, the report said.
“I was really worried to see if they were going to get me out or not,” Dancy said.
Members of the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue were able to remove the top of the appliance and safely extricate Dancy.
“Once they figured out what to do … I just felt relieved. I just wanted to be out of there,” the teen said.
“I mean it’s pretty embarrassing, but all I can do is laugh it off.”
