Brooklyn and five-year-old brother Oakley were visiting grandparents Rosanne and David Chamberlain in Hilsea Crescent, Hilsea, when the accident happened.

Rosanne, 49, said: ‘They had both been fighting over Oakley’s bike – even though it’s too big for Brooklyn he still wanted to have a go.

‘They had been taking it in turns and Brooklyn had tried to get on the bike when his foot got stuck.’

Grandad David, 51, attempted to wriggle Brooklyn’s foot out.

He said: ‘Brooklyn was starting to get a little distressed and his foot had started to swell.

‘So we decided to call 999. There was no way of moving it.’

Cosham firefighters were called to the house at 5pm on Saturday, where they worked on freeing Brooklyn’s leg.

Watch manager Tim Pringle said: ‘We manipulated his foot and the bike to free him without injuring the boy or causing damage to the bike.’

The pair usually visit their grandparents on a Saturday once every fortnight.

David added: ‘The firemen lifted up Brooklyn and the bike.

‘That way they had taken the weight off and were able to get his foot out.

‘After that he was running around like a good ‘un.

‘He was fine by the time we dropped them back off to their parents’ house.’

Since the incident mum Alicia and dad David, both 23, of Gruneisen Road, Stamshaw, say Brookyln has been fine.

Alicia said: ‘When my mum first told me what had happened I laughed.

‘I checked his foot to make sure everything was OK and he hasn’t had any problems.’
