A Wyndham Vale woman escaped injury when her hair became caught in a whipper snipper this afternoon. (Mon 3 Dec 2012)

CFA was called to the incident in Cambridge Cresent in Wyndham Vale just after midday where a woman’s hair was caught around the motor of the whipper snipper.

Crews from Wyndham Vale, Hoppers Crossing and Werribee attended the incident and dismantled the tool and untangled the woman’s hair from around the motor without the need to cut it. Fortunately she was not injured in the incident.

The incident was called under control just before 12.20pm.
