Firefighters were called to rescue an 11-year-old girl who got her lip trapped while trying to scan her face into a computer.
A spokesman for the Ipswich fireservice said that Catherine Simpson had been experimenting with the old-style scanner when her lip got caught in a roller.
"Her mother could not release her and in desperation called us," the spokesman said.
Catherine's mother, Sally Simpson, told Reuters that her daughter screamed when she thought she was going to lose her top lip. "She's fine now. Her lip's a bit swollen and she will not be doing it again," she said.
"I just gave her a cuddle. She didn't do it on purpose."
It took one fireman to hold her and another to roll her lip out. A fire service spokesman said: "We have the tools for these kind of things although this was certainly a little bit different. She was in quite a lot of pain."
A spokeswoman for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents admitted that this was a new one on them. "It goes without saying that it's not a good idea to put parts of your body into a computer scanner, but then kids will be kids," she said.
