Firefighters were called in to help dislodge a teenage student wedged in a chair at Semaun Religious School on Saturday.

ABK 404 Pengiran Haji Ali bin Pengiran Haji Abdul Wahab led a four-men team from Sungai Kebun Fire Station to the school after a distress call was received at 3.33pm, the Fire and Rescue Department said in a statement.

After arriving at the scene, the firefighters found the 13-year-old student precariously sandwiched between the wooden seat and the steel frame of the chair.

A holmator cutter was brought in to free the teenager, who walked away without any injuries.
