Girl in critical condition after getting trapped in mechanical bed

- A six-year-old South Jersey girl is in critical condition after getting trapped in the mechanical bed in her parents’ bedroom.

Egg Harbor Township police say the base of the bed was putting pressure on her chest and affected her breathing when they got the call, Thursday evening.

Then, she “lost consciousness and her father was able to pry the base open just enough for her to breathe again.”

Police officers had to free the child by disassembling the base of the bed using tools from their duty belts.

The girl was flown to the hospital.
