A 2-year-old Tennessee tot needed to be power-sawed out of an antique wooden barrel after he crawled inside and became stuck.
Dorian Strubing’s mom said the family was visiting grandparents in Portland, Tennessee, last Saturday when the curious toddler became wedged in the 25-pound barrel.
“Dorian loves to play with the barrel, he always loves playing with it, hiding toys in it and even trying to climb in,” Kelly Strubing told The Post.
“I think Dorian and the barrel weigh about the same,” she said with a laugh, adding that the 3-inch-thick wooden barrel has been in the family for a while.
When they weren’t able to get Dorian free, the family ended up in the emergency room — where firefighters and medical staff needed an X-ray machine to carefully guide the risky extraction.
Nurses gave Dorian a teddy bear to clutch while the X-rays determined where his hips, knees and feet were inside the barrel, Strubing said.
