KEEPING HIS COOL: Dad Saves Daughter From Falling Fridge

This is the chilling moment a three-year-old girl was almost crushed by a refrigerator after it fell on top of her when she opened the door.

CCTV footage of the drama shows the youngster reaching up to open the door of a chiller cabinet at her family’s restaurant in the city of Fuyang, Anhui Province, central China, on 20th November.

As she pulls on the handle the seven-feet-tall fridge lurches forward and seems certain to crush her.

But as the cabinet topples over its door props it up for a few seconds allowing the girl’s dad to rush forward and stop it falling on top of her.

The video of the scary scene was later shared on Douyin – the Chinese version of TikTok – where netizens put the blame on the badly designed refrigerator.

User ‘Mutong Kangshi And Xueyuan Glasses’ said: “The current refrigerator design is unreasonable, a glass door is heavier than the entire refrigerator!”
