Firefighters rescued a woman stuck in a chair, who was making a fetish video for her work and shared the ordeal on a TikTok.

The TikTok star from the US, who goes by @sydneysomethin on the app, uploaded a video on Wednesday of her stuck in a chair.

"You might be wondering what I'm doing for the last 30 minutes," she said. 

"I have been trying to get unstuck, out of this metal chair. I'm literally stuck in it and I can't get out."

Sydney said she was panicking, explaining the chair was stuck on her tailbone and pelvic bone, so there was no way she could squeeze out.

The predicament Sydney was in forced her to call the fire department so she could be released from the chair.

In a second video she shared on TikTok, the three attending firefighters walk in and greet her, as she stands in the middle of the room still stuck in the chair.

Initially the firies try and use clippers to get the metal chair off Sydney, however, they end up using the jaws of life to get her unstuck.

"Oh my f***ing god, really?" she exclaims, when they bring in the jaws of life, they cut through the metal and eventually get her out.

Firefighters commended for 'professionalism and skill'

Chief Michael Kennedy of the Ann Arbor Fire Department confirmed to Michigan Live crews responded to reports of someone stuck in a chair.

“We appreciate the professionalism and skill of the crew and are grateful the resident was not injured,” Chief Kennedy told MLive.

In a third video, Sydney explained she couldn't get out of the chair the same way she got in, saying she had a few questions asking why she didn't try that.

She added she had no idea why she couldn't get out the same way she got in.

In another follow up video she explained how she ended up stuck in the chair in the first place.

"My whole TikTok is basically sex work and giving sex work advice specifically online sex work and 'stuck' is a fetish category that I am pretty popular in," she says.

"I've done it for about nine years now. And yeah, I was just working my job. So, probably not the answer you were expecting, but I was, I was literally just working."

Fortunately, Sydney seemed to be okay and was laughing in the video, saying she was happy her predicament made so many others laugh.
