Two-Year-Old Gets Toilet Seat Stuck On Head
Little Teagan Culverhouse had to be freed by firefighters after a toilet seat got stuck around her neck.
Her parents were teaching her to use the potty and she apparently couldn’t wait to start her training when mom and dad brought her a new Minnie Mouse training seat. However, while she was playing with the toilet seat, something unexpected happened – she pulled it down her head and couldn’t take it off.
Teagan’s parents tried to free her, but all their attempts were futile. They even asked neighbors if they had any cutting equipment. When everything failed, they called the firefighters who managed to free the toddler.
“I bought it that day and she was just messing around, putting it on her head, I didn’t think anything of it. My husband then went upstairs to give her a bath and put her in her pajamas, he was just putting something away and when he turned around the seat was around her neck. At first we thought it was quite funny, but then when we started trying to get it off we just couldn’t get it over her ears. We tried to put butter around it to help it slide over but it wouldn’t work, we also tried olive oil and Fairy liquid. We tried to cut it off but we just didn’t have anything sharp enough. We went next door but they didn’t have anything suitable either.”
Since all went well, mom and dad can now laugh at the incident.
“I can’t believe so many people know about it – all the neighbors and locals seem to be talking about it. We are definitely seeing the funny side of it – you have to really. At one point the firemen were worried they would have to use electrical cutting equipment but in the end they were able to use some tough cut scissors. Little Teagan was very good throughout, she only really got upset when we were trying to get it over her ears. She won’t be doing it again!”
