Girl, five, is trapped in a Thomas the Tank motorcycle ride – and must be released by firefighters
A five-year-old had to be rescued by firefighters after being stuck in a Thomas the Tank motorcycle ride in a shopping mall.
Mother Tara McMullin, 23, from Ipswich, Queensland, Australia, was forced to call the emergency services after Ella McMullin broke into tears and screamed that she was stuck in the chair when the ride stopped.
Unable to remove her panicked daughter from the chair, a team of four firefighters, three paramedics and two guards were summoned to free the girl.
Mrs. McMullin's sister, Jessica, 26, posted the pictures of the incident online – more than 3,000 likes gathered in just a few days.

On the day of the trial, the mother staying at home, who had been shopping with her daughter, had done so paid the £ 1.10 ($ 2AUD) fee for the ride and stood with her sister while the couple watched Ella enjoy her time on the children's train.
However, when the mother and her sister both failed to get Ella out of the ride, McMullin was left with another option than seeking help from the emergency services.
A team of firefighters was then called to the scene and worked 40 minutes on the ride before little Ella was finally released unharmed.
Mrs. McMullin, who is also the mother of two-year-old Lukas, said: & # 39; It was about 6:30 pm & # 39; At night, my sister and I got some groceries from Ella in our local mall.
& # 39; She saw the ride and of course, children as children, asked if she could continue.
& # 39; We paid the $ 2 for the ride, but then she started crying and told us she was stuck.
The mother staying home realized something was wrong when her daughter started crying and screaming when the ride came to a halt

& # 39; We went to her and tried to get her out, but it didn't work. She panicked more and I had no idea what to do.
& # 39; I tried to calm her down because she was very stressed out because she couldn't move.
& # 39; Her feet, knees, legs, and butt were completely clamped.
Mrs. McMullin (pictured with daughter Ella) said that after the incident, Ella & # 39; completely good & # 39; was and could not wait to tell her friends
& # 39; My sister told me to call the fire department, and I didn't want that at first, but then I realized that we needed their help.
& # 39; The firefighters showed up together with the paramedics and a few guards. It was so embarrassing.
& # 39; When they came, they were so nice about it, they also laughed with me and told me that it would happen that you would think more often.
& # 39; They put a red armor under her and a fireman held her while the others pulled her out.
& # 39; I was worried about her, but couldn't help but laugh about it. & # 39;
A relieved Mrs. McMullin said that after her ordeal on May 20, little Ella was completely fine and even excitedly told her school friends what had happened the next day.
Mrs. McMullin added: & # 39; She was fine the next day and was not traumatized at all.
& # 39; The next day she told all her friends about what had happened and made up songs about it.
& # 39; All my family and friends laughed about it. Her facial expressions are the best.
& # 39; You can see all the emotions there. Her little face looks so angry and over it all.
& # 39; They are classic photos & I can't wait to show her when she gets older.
& # 39; They will certainly come out on her 18th birthday. & # 39;
