Boy gets fingers stuck in bathtub plughole
A SEVEN-YEAR-OLD boy is unscathed, apart from embarrassment, after getting his fingers stuck in a bathtub plughole at a home in the Blue Mountains last night (Sunday).
Emergency services were called to the boy’s home in The Avenue, Wentworth Falls, about 6pm after his parents had been unable to remove three fingers from the bathroom drain.
The Blue Mountains Police Rescue Squad and other emergency services removed the plughole from the bathtub and freed the boy’s fingers about 7:55pm.
He was assessed at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics and did not require any treatment, police say.
