Woman's hand stuck in glove box

UPI News Service, 02/25/2013 

British firefighters said they were called to a woman's home to free her hand from the glove compartment of her car.

Stuart Hall, crew manager of the Stockport, England, fire crew, said firefighters were called to the 49-year-old woman's home when her hand became stuck in the glove box while she was attempting to retrieve something, The Mirror reported Monday.

"She wasn't able to move her hand -- either to push it in or pull it out," Hall said. "There was a man there with her and he tried for a long time to no avail so they had no other option but to call us."

The firefighters freed the woman by first removing her wristwatch., the newspaper said.

"As soon as the watch came off it was fine; they were a little embarrassed as we were a last resort," Hall said. "But if someone is stuck they are stuck, they can't stay there all night. We don't train for something exactly like this but we will always be able get people free somehow."

The woman suffered slight bruising and soreness in her wrist, Hall said.
