Boy freed after five-hour fingers stuck in bathtub plug-hole ordeal

When Fiona Markham-Moeller responded to her nine-year-old son Jackson's cries at their home in Riverstone, northwest Sydney, Australia, she discovered he had three fingers stuck in the cast iron bathtub plug-hole.

What followed was a five-hour rescue operation, involving 14 firefighters, an ambulance crew and a power saw used to cut a section out of the bottom of the bath.

"I was just scared that I could be stuck in there for too long and my fingers could fall off," Jackson later said.

Eventually Jackson finally managed to free his hand and escape with just a small abrasion on one finger.
