Toddler locks herself inside room; Family breaks door to rescue
Haripad (Alappuzha): A one-and-a-half-year-old girl gave a hard time for her entire family after she inadvertently locked inside a room in their house. The family struggled for more than half an hour to get the toddler out of the room.
The incident took place at a house in Pilappuzha here on Wednesday night. The toddler was playing in the hall and happened to enter into the room. Soon after, the girl somehow managed to bolt the door. However, the little girl could not release bolt and was trapped inside the room.
The family panicked after not seeing the girl and had to break one of the windowpanes to see her. The situation got more dangerous after the girl started to pick up the broken glass pieces with her hand. The family members then tried to break the door using a hammer.
After struggling hard for over half-an-hour, they broke the bolted portion of the door and entered the room to take the child out. The little girl was not injured. On information, the fire and rescue service had also arrived at the spot.
