A toddler needed emergency assistance to remove a toilet seat from her head – more than 30 years after her dad starred in his local paper for doing the same thing.
Clodagh-Mae Cafferkey, three, was potty training for the first time at her home in Hartelpool, Country Durham when she put the toilet seat over her head and got stuck – repeating what her father, Shaun Patrick Cafferkey, 36, managed to do 34 years before her.
After discovering that Clodagh-Mae was stuck, her mother, Kayla Cooper, 27, tried everything to remove the toilet seat, including applying oil and butter, before calling the fire brigade.
The fire brigade were forced to use cutters to free her and later gave her a teddy bear before letting her ride in their fire truck.
Her mother later revealed that the toddler’s father had appeared in his local paper for doing the same thing 34 years earlier.

Kayla said afterwards: ‘She put the seat over her head and I was joking on at first saying ‘don’t do that, your dad did the same thing and it got stuck’ then I realised it was actually stuck.
‘Thankfully she wasn’t in any danger and was laughing about the whole thing. We rang the fire brigade and they struggled to get it off so they had to get the cutters out.
‘This was her first time potty training and I just couldn’t believe it, especially with the same thing happening to her dad all those years ago. Luckily she was fine and took the whole thing in her stride.’
After seeing what Clodagh-Mae had done, Kayla quickly told partner Shaun Patrick what had happened – only for him not to believe her at first.
Kayla added: ‘I told Shaun Patrick and he thought I was joking or winding him up.
I had to send him a picture for proof and he couldn’t stop laughing.

‘It’s just such a coincidence her dad did the same thing when he was potty training.
It must run in the family.’
Clodagh-Mae now looks back and laughs at the incident and is excited to resume her potty training in the future.
Latest Home Office data shows that the number of calls to Cleveland Fire Brigade to remove objects from people, which are combined with calls to help stranded animals, rose by 19 to 142 in the year ending this March.
