After failing to get her leg out several times, Naivah’s mother, Samantha Walkley, called emergency services.
“I felt his back for like two seconds, I walked in and as soon as I stepped outside, I saw his foot was down in the pipe,” said Walkley. sunrise,
“I laughed at first because I thought she was going to pass out straight away, but she definitely didn’t.”
Metropolitan Fire Service Station Officer Andy Dunt was among the crew helping free the 23-month-old baby.
“We were just worried. We made sure he was happy and safe and he kept a smile on his face most of the time, so we took our time to make sure we didn’t hurt him further,” Dunt said.
To keep her calm throughout the trial, she was given a bottle of milk and a phone to play by The Wiggles.
Firefighters sang songs to help.
“I wasn’t singing Wiggles, because it would hurt more if I sang it,” Dunt joked.
“Shamas, one of the other firefighters, sang some The Wiggles songs to keep him entertained. I held a bottle of milk in his mouth for a while to keep him calm.
Firefighters dug about a meter to break the pipe and finally freed Naivah. She was not injured.
“They were fantastic the whole time,” Walkley said.
“I was tense at first, but when they woke up they had everything under control and got them out really quickly.”
