Firefighters free Flintshire student stuck in clothes horse - with video

A STUDENT got trapped in a clothes horse for more than an hour and had to be cut free by firefighters.

Danielle Morgan, 18, from Buckley, was playing around in a friend’s room when she fell off the bed and the clothes horse dropped on her head.

It became stuck around her neck and her friends at the University of Derby halls of residence initially tried to help her remove it.

But when they failed they were forced to call in a fire crew.

They used bolt cutters to remove the clothes horse after being called at 9.30pm on Sunday.

Miss Morgan wrote on Facebook shortly after the incident: “Having four hunky firemen and two paramedics come to my rescue! What a way to spend a Sunday night. I feel like I’ve been stuck in a clothes horse for an hour! My friends just thought it was hilarious.”

The 18-year-old said she had been left with bruising to her neck and shoulders.
