Boy stuck in washing machine while playing hide and seek.
The youngster had to be rescued by firefighters in the bizarre incident in the city of Kharkov in eastern Ukraine.
The boy, whose name has not been released, was playing hide and seek with his sister in the family’s flat.
He thought he had found the perfect hiding place when he crawled into the drum of the washing machine.
But once inside, he found he could not get out again and ended up shouting for help.
None of his family was able to pull the youngster out of the washing machine so they called emergency services for help.
Four firefighters arrived and, after surveying the situation, came up with the idea of covering the boy in sunflower oil.
