    wiggle out of her arms


    In this blog(THE GLORY OF MOTHERHOOD By Dr. Edward Watke Jr.) :

    Once I heard the story about a mother who went to a circus, and while standing by a bear pit, feeding the bears, her little baby wiggled out of her arms and fell into the midst of the hungry bears.

    Does "wiggled out of" mean the baby kept twisting or bending or turning his body, and finally got out of her mommy?

    Thank you.

    Re: wiggle out of her arms

    Yes, finally got away from her mom.

    I would expect "wriggle" with an "r."
