Firefighters freed a 3-year-old girl after she got her head stuck in a gate Wednesday at a fast-food restaurant in Buena Park, officials said.

Orange County Fire Authority personnel were called to a McDonald’s at 5900 Beach Boulevard at 4 p.m., Capt. Steve Concialdi said in a tweet.

Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to free the girl within 20 minutes, after which she was given a firefighter sticker badge and a stuffed animal, Concialdi said.
