An embarrassed dad had to take his toddler daughter to A&E with a pink toilet training seat — stuck round her neck.
Scott Webber, 28, was looking after daughter Josie, two, when she went upstairs to the bathroom at their home.
But instead of putting her training potty on the loo, the little girl slid it over her head, where it got stuck.
Shocked Scott, a learning support practitioner, tried to pry the bright pink plastic seat from his daughter’s head.
But her ears kept getting in the way and she complained it was hurting her – so he was left with no choice but to rush her to A&E.
Onlookers laughed at the sight of the tot wearing the pink potty, and although the family found it far from funny at first, they’re now able to laugh about the incident.
Scott, from in Minehead, Somerset, said: “I couldn’t believe it when I saw what she’d done.
“I thought it would just come off but her ears kept getting in the way and she was getting so mad at me.
“She loves telling people about it now though – she’s just a crazy kid!”
Scott and little Josie, who is potty training had just had their evening meal together when she went to the loo, and then shouted for help, on August 6.
Her dad found her in the bathroom doorway wearing her bright pink potty round her neck.
“I told her to stop messing about and take it off but when she told me it was stuck I tried myself.”
After calling Josie’s mum, Laura Thompson, 29, Scott bundled their daughter into the car and rushed her to Minehead Community Hospital, Somerset.
“When we walked into A&E everyone was staring at us,” Scott said.
“I don’t blame them, but one woman did start laughing and Josie didn’t like it one bit!
“She shouted at them ‘it’s not funny’ – but I think we can all agree it was.”
The family were seen within 15 minutes and although Scott was worried they would need to cut the potty off, they were able to remove it by taping Josie’s ears down to her head and sliding it off.
“The potty is still in the boot of my car – I’m not risking her doing it again,” Scott said.
“We’ve bought another one that she won’t be able to put on her head, just in case.”
Little Josie now finds the whole incident hilarious, repeating the story to all their friends and family by saying ‘stuck’ before busting into fits of laughter.
Their relatives have all teased her for ‘being like her dad’, who has been known all his life for having a ‘big head’.
“When I left school it said in my yearbook that my future job would be to work in a ‘large hat manufacturer’,” Scott said.
“It’s always been a running joke so my mates find it extra funny that this happened to Josie.
“She’s never going to live this one down, those photos will haunt her forever!
“We’ll make sure to remind her of this when she turns 18 and has her first boyfriend.”
