The girl's head was lodged for about 20 minutes between two bars of the fence around a play area at the restaurant in the 4900 block of Beach Boulevard in Buena Park. Orange County Fire Authority personnel used the Jaws of Life rescue tool to cut through bars so the child could escape.

The uninjured girl was crying, but managed a smile after receiving a fireman's sticker badge, a stuffed animal and ice cream.
