KUALA LUMPUR – A pre-school student had to endure pain for more than 20 minutes after her left foot got stuck in a steel manhole cover near the Kuala Kubu Bharu Mini Stadium, Friday.
The incident occurred at about 12 noon when six-year-old Larisa d/o Cundang, of Sekolah Kebangsaan Kuala Kubu 2, was on her way home after taking part in sports activities at the school.
Kuala Kubu Bharu Fire and Rescue Department operating officer Azami Bakar told Bernama that the girl slipped and her leg got stuck in the steel manhole cover up to her thigh.
Eight members of the Fire and Rescue department were dispatched to the scene after receiving a call at 12.24pm.
Azami said the team was able to extricate the girl’s leg by using hydraulic cutting tool to pry open the steel cover.
The girl only suffered minor injuries, he added. – BERNAMA
