A game of hide-and-seek ended with the dramatic rescue of a toddler in China who got stuck inside a washing machine.

The 3-year-old boy climbed inside the washing machine while playing the game with his mother at their home when he became trapped on Sunday.

Firefighters rushed to the scene and dismantled the machine, and then used a circular power saw to cut open the plastic drum and get the boy out.

China Central Television said the boy was freed after about two hours and seemed just fine.
