Woman freed from dishwasher at Malmaison Dundee


A female member of staff was rescued by the emergency services after trapping her hand in a dishwasher at the Malmaison Dundee.

Firefighters and paramedics were dispatched to the city centre hotel in Whitehall Crescent after receiving reports of the 19-year-old being stuck in the machine.

Firefighters smashed the glass of the dishwasher to free the teenager who was then attended to by paramedics, before being taken to Ninewells Hospital for further treatment. The team freed her by using a centre punch to break the toughened glass and then the paramedics dealt with her.
