A South Jordan girl was stuck in a washing machine for more than an hour after she climbed inside during a game of hide-and-seek.
The girl, 11, was playing the game with her siblings when she climbed into the machine Tuesday afternoon, said South Jordan Battalion Chief Reed Thompson. After a while, she realized she would not be found and tried to get out.
But her legs had fallen asleep while she was curled up, and the washing machine was beneath a stackable dryer, leaving only enough space to open and close the washer's lid, Thompson said. The girl called for help, but her parents could not get her out.
