Firefighters rescue 13-year-old stuck in washing machine

PLANO, TX -- A 13-year-old suburban Dallas boy playing around at home with some friends decided to see if he could fit in a washing machine.

Turns out he could. But then he couldn't get out.

His parents wound up calling firefighters in Plano. Fire department spokeswoman Peggy Harrell told a Dallas newspaper firefighters were able to remove the top from the washer and pull out the boy. He wasn't hurt.

The fire department, in a tweet about the Saturday rescue, calls it "extreme #springcleaning."
