Toddler ‘rescued’ from toilet seat

Burbank firefighters were called to remove a toilet seat from a 2-year-old girl’s head just after 3 p.m. Friday.

The girl’s parents brought the toddler to Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center after her head became stuck in the child-sized toilet seat, said spokeswoman Patricia Aidem.

According to Aidem, hospital personnel were unsuccessful at removing the seat from her head and called in the fire department.

Firefighters used a close-quarters hacksaw to separate the seat from the child, Fire Capt. Ron Bell said.
