Fire-crews called to rescue girl stuck between a wall and a container

Two fire-crews spent an hour freeing a schoolgirl who had become trapped between a metal storage container and a wall while at school.

The 10-year-old girl - a pupil at an independent primary school in Manchester - was described as being 'tightly wedged' between the building and the container when the fire service arrived on the scene.

Using airbags to try and widen the gap, eight firemen wrestled to free the young girl, while a trauma technician, usually brought in to deal with road accident victims, tried to keep her calm.

The Jewish Chronicle reports that a fire service spokesperson confirmed the incident had occurred, and that the schoolgirl was conscious and breathing throughout.

"The container had to be emptied of its contents before firemen could rescue her," the fire services representative said. "The girl was freed after an hour without injury."
