Man rescued from washing machine

 

Sydney (AFP) – An Australian man who made global headlines after becoming wedged naked in his washing machine during a prank said Tuesday his freeing by police using olive oil was “like a birthing”.

The man, who has identified himself only as “Laurence”, opened up about the mortifying incident in which a large group of rescue workers had to grease up his 5 foot-9 inch, 150 pound frame to pull him from his top-loader machine.

He told commercial radio he had “decided to have a bit of sneaky fun while in the nude” but found shortly after clambering into the washing machine that “I couldn’t get actually fully in or fully out and had to call for assistance.”
