11-yr.-old gets stuck in washing machine during game of hide and seek

Posted: Updated:
UTAH - It started out as a game of hide and seek but quickly turned into a search and rescue.

With winning on her mind, 11-yr.-old Trinity Rhodes of Utah found a brilliant hiding space, the washing machine. But almost as soon as she dipped into the stackable washer and dryer she was stuck.

“I think the first idea was butter, so they got a cube of butter, rubbed it on her, that didn't work,” explains Trinity’s mom.  “They tried peanut butter because, why not?  They decided to use ice but then she was cold so they poured warm water on her."

After about 15 minutes, Trinity is not only stuck, she's wet, cold and slathered in condiments.  So with no other option Trinity's mom called the fire department.  After two hours they sawed off the top of the machine and Trinity wiggled her way out.  Her mom says she's okay and it's her ego that took the most bumps.
