A little boy needed more than a Lidl bit of help after his leg got painfully stuck – in a supermarket TROLLEY.
The 16-month-old boy was shopping with his dad when his right leg became trapped in a hole in the wire mesh on the Lidl trolley.
The little lad panicked and began screaming but his dad, who does not want to be named, had to call the fire brigade because he didn’t want to risk injuring his son further.
His dad is now awaiting an X-ray on his son’s leg, but has thanked Kent Fire and Rescue who had to cut the trolley apart to release the distressed tot in the store in Ashford, Kent, on Wednesday.
The dad said: “The blue plastic on the trolleys is too wide and allows little people to turn themselves around.
“Then he got his foot through the bars somehow as I was taking the trolley to the trolley bay.
“So I turned around and went back into store and asked staff for assistance.
“The manager came out, and escorted us into staff area and called for the fire brigade who came out and cut the trolley apart.
“In my opinion the trolleys are dangerous.
“I would like to say a big thank you to the fire crew.
Lidl have been approached for a comment.
