Firefighters work to free Dorian Strubing from a wooden barrel over the weekend.

When emergency personnel couldn’t get it out of the barrel, they called the fire department.

The Portland Fire Department Engine 2 crew took Dorian outside to get him out of the cannon, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page.

Strubing said they were considering using the Jaws of Life to free Dorian, but couldn’t get a good grip on the barrel. Instead, they cut the barrel with an electric saw, so that they could then pry the bottom off with screwdrivers and hammers.

Kelly Strubing, Dorian’s mother, said she was very nervous – but the firefighters did a great job and never came close to cutting Dorian.

“When his feet could be released from the bottom of the barrel and I pulled him out the top, it was a relief!” she said. “He just hung on to me, it was the best hug I’ve ever had and I’ll never forget that moment.”

Dorian had been in the barrel for about two hours by the time he broke free, his father said.

Dorian had an ice cream and a checkup, and his parents asked the firefighters and everyone in the emergency room to sign the barrel for him.

They keep it in the garage because it will be a nice keepsake for him when he gets old.

“Every time he walks by he says ‘barrel stuck!’” His father said.
