Danielle Morgan, of the University of Derby, admits she was "mucking about" in her flatmate's bedroom when the accident happened. Friends and staff at Sir Peter Hilton Court hall of residence tried to free her before calling the fire service, reports the BBC.
The 18-year-old said she had been left with bruising to her neck and shoulders but could now laugh about the accident. She had fallen off the bed of her flatmate, Lisa Smith, 18, when the clothes horse fell on top of her and her head went through the frame.
Miss Morgan, 18, from North Wales, said: "My friends just thought it was hilarious.
"I found it funny at first but after it got taken off I had a panic attack and the ambulance came out."
Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service confirmed that they used cutting equipment to free Miss Morgan from the clothes horse.Post published in: World News
