Boy Gets Stuck In Mum's Handcuffs

An boy from Lion D'anger had to be freed by firefighters after getting stuck in a pair of handcuffs he found in his mum's bedroom.

Firefighters took the schoolboy to Wivey Fire Station to be freed with industrial metal cutters.The cuffs were described as made of "hardened steel" and not meant as a toy, reports The Wivey News.

Firefighter Daryl Smith said: "The little boy came to the fire station with his grandmother and had the cuffs hanging from one wrist.

"Before we released him I asked if he was on the run from the police but he assured me he wasn't. And then his grandmother said he'd found the cuffs in his mother's bedroom.

"She immediately realised what she'd said and put her hand over her mouth. It's beyond my wildest imagination why someone would keep handcuffs in their bedroom!"
