A shopping trolley stunt has gone horribly wrong for two girls in Adelaide.

Danielle Harmer was playing in the car park of Munno Para Shopping City on Sunday night.

She and a friend got into a trolley but things went awry when they both realised they were trapped inside.

Danielle filmed it all on TikTok captioning the video: “Never want to see a trolley again in my life”.

Fortunately, Danielle was able to call Triple-0 and the fire department responded to free the pair.

A SA Metro Fire Department spokeswoman told Yahoo News Australia four firefighters were called in about 10.30pm.

In the video, the firies are seen standing around the girls trying to determine how to get them out.

Efforts to free them appeared to be futile – the only solution was to bring in power tools.

The girls were handed safety goggles as the fire crew used an angle grinder to cut the pair out.

They were both seen clinging tight to each other as the fire crew sawed through the back panel.

The fire spokeswoman said it took about 10-15 minutes and no ambulance was required for either of the girls.

Danielle told 7News.com.au firefighters at first didn’t believe her when she rang about her trolley ordeal.

“They thought it was a joke. They were like, ‘are you sure?’” she told the publication.

Danielle added she asked her friend, stuck in the trolley with her, to stand up so they could both get out.

But her friend said she couldn't move as her legs were trapped.

Viewers on TikTok at least found the video amusing.

“I’m dying,” one woman wrote.

Another called it “the funniest thing out”.
