A girl became a human jack o'lantern after getting her head stuck inside a pumpkin


PLEASE DO NOT try this at home.

Kirsty Ralphs was carving pumpkins with her five kids when her eldest daughter, Rachel, decided to stick her head inside a particularly large one.

After forcing her head inside fully, she realised that she couldn’t get back out again – her ponytail was getting stuck and preventing her from wriggling out.

Ah, the limp arms of defeat.

Oh dear. Mam Kirsty was perfectly calm throughout the incident (fair play) and ended up putting the video on YouTube, where it went viral.

In a second video, Kirsty informed viewers that had Rachel freed herself moments after the first clip ended.

Rachel’s exasperated dad, who just minutes earlier had suggested calling emergency services, can be heard in the background asking why she stuck her head in the pumpkin anyway.

I just thought it would be funny.

Famous last words, girl.
