Share This Article:

Derby student Danielle Morgan has shown that clothes horses are not as harmless as they look after getting herself trapped in one for an hour, and the fire services being called to cut her free.

Student trapped in clothes horseThe incident occurred on Sunday night at Sir Peter Hilton Court at the University of Derby, when the 18-year-old fresher fell off her flatmate Lisa Smith’s bed, also 18, whilst trying to adjust a quilt hanging on the clothes horse in question.

The object fell over her head, trapping her within the frame. When neither friends nor staff were able to disentangle her, the Derby Fire and Rescue Service were sent for to put an end to her ordeal.

At first Morgan herself saw the funny side, and admitted: “My friends just thought it was hilarious,” as they documented the event with photos and film.

However, the trauma of the situation, which caused bruising to the Welsh student’s neck and shoulders, revealed itself later on.

Having been cut loose with bolt croppers amongst other tools, Morgan claimed: “I had a panic attack and the ambulance was called out.”

The fire service were said to be in a state of disbelief at this unusual case.
