Twelve firefighters in three fire engines called to rescue teenage girl who got stuck in a SWING in local park

3 it appears. I wonder if it was quite day and they all decided to come out and have a look?

Just shows how busy they are.

Shame they did not put the time to good use getting some physical training done. The figures produced on fire crew fitness tests are appalling.

Can you take seriously a national newspaper which writes seen as scene? (Second picture). Is this just negative publicity prior to the firefighters strikes?

You can all make fun, but more than 3 tenders should have been sent, really.

Children are highly flammable. A dropped match near the girl could have reduced the whole park to rubble.

Also, the swing may have been made of compressed anthrax so biochem suits would have been in order.

Also, a coachload of firemen should have been sent to carry out a risk assessment.

A child stuck on a swing could have attracted hordes of paedos, so the firemen would have had to be ready to fight them off with hoses, etc.

Finally, a kitten might have been stuck up her **se, requiring specialist equipment.

Firemen don't have a dangerous job. Anyone who tells you that is simply trying to justify their benefits and pay.

Being a Lollipop man is probably more dangerous. And they don't get paid and don't go on strike.

I'm not firemen's greatest fan (cushy overpaid job for academic under-achievers) but a lot of these calls are for retained firemen so they just put out a shout and take whoever comes. I don't see how they can say "Just the first five" for example.

Cue the "But they save lives!" brigade rushing to their defence.

I see in the picture the "child" appears to be a well-formed young lady. Distinct swell of the upper chest area visible in the photos. The article goes on about "child" when she obviously isn't - funny how they don't mention her age, and was stupid enough to plonk her womanly backside into a toddler's swing.

I bet the three engines attended because it's hell of a lot more fun than putting fires out, or picking up body parts after an road accident.
