'Sada' newspaper carried this picture without specifying the girl’s age.

Saudi doctors struggled to save a little local girl after her tongue was caught inside a water container while she was playing with it.

The girl was pushing and pulling her tongue out of a hole in the container when it got stuck and she failed to take it out.

Doctors at King Fahd Hospital in the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah raced against time to free the tongue after the girl started to feel numbness in her mouth.

“In the end, they managed to take the tongue out of the container. The tongue was pulled out safely but the girl was kept in hospital for observation on that day,” 'Sada' newspaper said without specifying the girl’s age.
