Mangaluru: Usually called upon to intervene in dangerous situations, the fire services in Mangaluru received a peculiar request on Thursday.

Parents of a 12-year-old girl said they couldn't enter their apartment on the fourth floor as the door had been locked from the inside by their daughter who, they said, was sound asleep.

The incident occurred at Abhiman Mansion, Bejai Church Road in Mangaluru.

Upon receiving the request, fire services reached the spot. Using the Aerial Ladder Platform, one of the firemen entered the house through the balcony and opened the main door. "Parents entered the room and woke up the girl," said the chief fire officer.
