Girl's head trapped in gate after copying pet dog

275x250.jpg Little Rachel Warren was trying to copy her pet dog when she shoved her head through the garden gate… but unlike the rottweiler Tess, Rachel couldn't get back out.

As a result the four-year-old had to be rescued by firefighters who pried the black gate apart to release her.

Mom Carlene, from Brierley Hill in the West Midlands, says she was taking Rachel to nursery and had just put her reins on when she started pretending to be a dog and ran outside.

The next thing she knew, she heard a loud noise, went out to investigate and found her daughter lodged between the black railings.

"I shouted at her to call the fire brigade now, I was starting to panic. Rachel was a bit upset at first but she calmed down after I told her Fireman Sam was on his way."

And within minutes of the firefighters arriving at the semi-detached home, she had been freed.

"Rachel was really excited and screamed 'here's Fireman Sam', when they got out she asked them where the rest of the characters were," added Carlene.

"They let her sit in the engine, she loved the whole thing. They even offered to take her back to nursery.  

"She declined, but she was back in nursery soon after, the teachers weren't surprised, she's always pretending to be a dog and getting into scrapes.
