Korean fire department rescued 36-year-old Mrs Kim after she became trapped in her washing machine on April 14 in her home in Juan-dong.

Mrs Kim had been sitting on the washing machine on her apartment’s veranda that morning to smoke a cigarette when she lost her balance and fell into the machine, pushing her body into a V-shape and leaving her trapped, the state in which her husband discovered her and called 119.

The rescue team used a cutting tool to break through the washing machine and rescue Mrs Kim, and fortunately Mrs Kim sustained no visible injury.
