Firefighters have rescued an 18-year-old woman after she became stuck in her washing machine during a game of hide and seek. 

Amari Dancy was playing the game with her younger cousins at home in Woodbridge, Virginia Sunday night when she decided to conceal herself in the large appliance. 

‘We had already hidden underneath the bed, in the closet, and we couldn’t go down into the basement so, I was like “Oh, OK, let’s just hide in the washer machine,”‘ she told NBC News on Tuesday.

But when Dancy put herself into the washer, she quickly realized she was unable to get back out. 

The trapped teen yelled out to cousins for help, and older relatives at home phoned first responders for help. 

More than half a dozen members of the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue arrived at the home shortly before 11 pm. 

Dancy’s aunt, Suni, documented the situation on her phone and posted the results to Instagram. 

One video shows four firefighters – wearing gloves and masks amidst the coronavirus pandemic – talking with Dancy as she remains contorted inside the machine.

‘Can you wiggle your toes?’ one is heard asking. 

The four men were able to remove the top of the washing machine to create enough room to pull Dancy out safely.

The group was seen pulling the 18-year-old up by the arms as she whimpers with discomfort. 

However, after Dancy was freed from the machine, she managed to see the humorous side of the situation. 

‘I mean it’s pretty embarrassing, but all I can do is laugh it off. My family had a laugh out of it, but as long as I’m OK, that’s all that matters to me.” 

Dancy’s aunt believes the incident is a cautionary tale for others who may be looking for unusual ways to conquer their boredom amid stay-at-home orders that are currently in place across most of the country. 

‘She doesn’t even normally play with the younger kids!’ Sunni stated.
