    Default Extrication of lip from lotion lid... seriously

    Last night we were called to a residence for a 3-year-old child who "has her lip stuck in a lotion bottle lid." The caller said they had been working for two or three hours to free the child.

    I get on scene and, sure enough, a little girl has the skin of her bottom lip wedged into a lotion bottle lid like this one, right where the green arrow is pointing.

    She'd been farting around with it, sucking on it and whatever, and got stuck.

    I couldn't get the flip-top lid to "hyper-close", and you can't touch the lid from the inside, so I decided to squeeze the barrel part into a bit of an oval shape, to theoretically create a gap. I couldn't do it by hand but used a pair of channelocks to gentle squeeze it and ta-daa! The lip came out.

    The black "spray-paint" shows roughly where I squeezed.

    The family didn't want medical treatment, so I told them to monitor her and administer popsicles PO as needed.

    I've been in this stuff for 21 years and never seen one like this. Don't underestimate the power of a bored 3-year-old, I guess.

    Guys if you get hurt, well help you. If you get sick well treat you. If you want to bitch and moan, then all I can tell you is to flick the sand out of your slit, suck it up or get the hell out!
