A naked man has been rescued by firefighters after becoming stuck in a top-loading washing machine.
The unnamed man from Victoria, Australia told crews he had been planning to surprise his girlfriend when he became trapped, The Australian reported.
The 20-year-old was popped free of his confines after he was greased with olive oil.
Sergeant Michelle De Araugo told Shepparton News: “He was very well wedged in there and we were concerned for his health and wellbeing. It was just a game gone wrong.
“It would be fair to say the gentleman was very embarrassed.”
It was lucky the man was naked, said First Constable Ingram Luke.
He told ABC News: “I guess if he’s going to get into a washing machine it’s best if he has no clothes on to be about to get him out like that.
“I guess the clothes can provide a bit of resistance to try to get him out.
