A MAN got his hand stuck in a teapot while trying a fish out a teabag.

Firefighters from Whiston attended the call-out at an address in St Helens shortly before 9am last Thursday (July 12).

Watch Manager Ian Pollock said: “It was a genuine accident. He was trying to fish a teabag out of the metal pot when his hand got stuck.

“We requested an ambulance as we could see some blood but did not know how badly his hand was cut.

“We cut the tea pot with small tools to create space so that the man could move his hand and free it. He was fine after his hand was freed.

“He was checked by a paramedic and had quite a small cut to his hand and did not require any stitches.”
