UPDATE: A toddler in Cleveland found herself in a sticky situation Friday, when she became stuck in concrete. 

The picture of the 2 year old is making its way around social media, and was featured this morning on the today show. Like any other two year old, Izzy loves to run and play. Friday, the curious toddler found herself in a sticky situation.

"And I got stuck in it," Izzy said, "Some sti-cky goo!"

Sticky-goo, or wet concrete.

"She had a look in her face like I don't know what to do," remembered Jonathan Porter, owner of Porter Concrete Construction.

Porter had just poured fresh concrete in the basement, and stepped outside to talk to Izzy's parents.

Izzy was supposed to be upstairs but, "She started right here," her dad Brad Millaway recalled, "Came down from the stairs, she walked through these poles all the way. And Mr. Porter got her out about right here."

Izzy is quick to tell you about her adventure.

"I was walking and a man just got me out of it," she said.

Porter pulled Izzy out of the 6 inch deep concrete. Luckily, she wasn't hurt.

"She wasn't stuck at all," said Porter, "She just didn't know where to go!"

"It's just hard to believe she would do it!" Brad said through laughter, "I thought her brother would do it over her!" 

Porter doubled his work, smoothing the path she took. But don't worry, this memory will last forever.

"We left her footprints," explained Porter.

Porter stamped Izzy's footprints in the concrete, a new story and reminder for her parents.

"All I can see is her standing in the middle of this basement in this 6 inches of concrete," Brad said.

It's still not clear how long Izzy was stuck in the concrete before porter found her.

Because the concrete was still wet Izzy's parents were able to use dish soap to clean her skin.


PREVIOUS STORY: By Scott Stump, TODAY

CELVELAND (NBC News) - Jonathan Porter has seen his share of pets walk through wet concrete poured by his construction company, but when he checked on a basement floor last week, he could only laugh at a sight he'd never witnessed.

Standing in the middle of a wet concrete floor with a panic-stricken look was Izzadora Millaway, 2, wondering how to get herself out of this mess.

"I looked inside and about 25 feet away from me I see this child standing dead center, and she had a look on her face that was priceless,'' Porter told TODAY. "She didn't know whether to back up or move forward."

"We were kind of taken aback by the whole situations, and we figured Jonathan was going to be extremely irritated because they were working hard, but it was comical,'' Izzadora's mother, Sara Millaway, told TODAY.

Porter, the owner of Porter Concrete Construction Company, had poured the concrete with his four-man crew about 45 minutes earlier in the basement of the Millaways' home in Cleveland, Tennessee.
