Firefighters rushed to the aid of a small child whose foot got stuck in a clothes rack on Tuesday afternoon.

Fire chief Paul Whitehead said the crew attended a rescue callout in Marton near Bulls about 3.25pm.

"It was just a small child got its foot caught in a clothes drying rack," he said.

"The bars were quite close."


Mr Whitehead was unsure of the child's age or gender.

The crew "just put a bit of dishwashing liquid on it" to free the foot, and the child was none the worse for wear, he said.
