A teenager was left rather red-faced when she had to be rescued by firefighters after she got stuck in a baby swing while filming a TikTok video.
Layani Maclean, 14, from Faringdon, Oxfordshire, was hanging out at her local park with her mates on 12th July, when she began filming a clip for the social media platform.
Each person would take it in turns to clamber in and out of the swing on film - but when it came Layani's turn, she became wedged in and was unable to move.
After trying helplessly to escape for over an hour, the TikToker's mum, Charlie Maclean, 40, had to call for the assistance from the local fire brigade.
Before firefighters arrived at the scene, Charlie and her neighbour had tried everything they could think of to free Layani, including coating the swing in washing up liquid.
The hilarious mishap was captured in a video, which shows the firefighters arrive while a mortified Layani tries to cover her face.
In the end, the firefighters had to unhinging the entire swing whilst supporting the TikToker's body weight.
They then used extra washing up liquid and eventually managed to squeeze poor Layani out.
By that point, the schoolgirl had been stuck for a total of 90 minutes.
Charlie, a mum-of-four, said: "It was a really bizarre situation to walk into.
"When my neighbour called to tell me I just started laughing, but when I arrived it was clear it was a bit more serious than I initially thought.
"My daughter was really embarrassed when we had to call the fire fighters, but when they arrived they were amazing.
"They did a great job, whilst cracking all the possible swing jokes they could think of.
"This definitely wasn't the first job they'd been to like that and they assured both me and my daughter that it wouldn't be their last.
"We're in the middle of baking them a cake now to say thank you."
Layani, we know this isn't the kind of video content you were after - but seriously, thank you.
