A MOM has relived the hilarious moment her three-year-old daughter managed to get a toilet seat stuck around her head and took three people to remove it after a trip to A&E.

Amy Sanderson’s daughter Ivy-Anne Bingham is currently potty training and went to the bathroom to use it while Amy was in the kitchen preparing dinner on April 23.

However, a few minutes later, the young woman had a pink toilet seat wrapped around her head.

At first glance, Amy said she thought it would slip away, but it didn’t.

After trying to shake him off, they had to make a trip from his home in Plymouth to the Derriford Hospital Emergency Department, where he said even the staff were laughing before the extraction, which took just over an hour.

Amy, who also works as a health worker, said: “My initial reaction when I saw her with the toilet seat on her head was ‘okay I’ll take it off’ but after assessing it I realized whichever way I put that , it wasn’t coming out.

“I tried to get it off and I couldn’t. It was getting caught on her ears, on her chin, so I thought, ‘I’m going to have to take her to the hospital.'”

Amy recalled having to carry her daughter from the hospital parking lot to A&E with the toilet seat wrapped around her head.

At the time, it was raining and the toilet seat was collecting water, so she had to tilt her daughter to the side to drain the water.

He added: “Ivy was playing on A&E in the kids stage and the more I look at the pictures the more it seems funny to see her playing with a toilet seat on her head, honestly brilliant.”

Amy said it took three people to remove the seat around her head by holding her down and covering her eyes to prevent anything from getting into them.

As soon as it was removed, Amy said Ivy was “absolutely fine.”

She said, “Ivy never has a dull moment, she does so many things that make us all laugh, she’s so funny, she’s strong-willed and she has a great character.”

Amy recalled laughing as she watched her daughter play in the A&E children's area with the toilet seat around her head.
