He had to go to the hospital and get X-rays to determine where his feet, knees and hips were before firefighters cut him free by removing part of the bottom of the barrel, according to NBC Nashville affiliate WSMV. His father held the barrel while firefighter pulled him out of the top of it. The initial plan was to use the Jaws of Life to extricate Dorian, but they ended up not being necessary. The entire ordeal to hours.

Dorian, who was not injured, received a Popsicle when he was finally freed because he managed to stay calm. His parents even asked the crew who helped extricate him to sign the barrel.
