A woman found herself in an amusing predicament from which she had to be rescued by firefighters. The mum, 22 year old Leala Vanbest, was out with her daughter and some friends at their local park when she decided to sit on one of the children’s swings.
After about 10 minutes, she tried to get out but found herself trapped. She tried everything to free herself, and even her friends and some other people tried to help, but she was stuck.
The fire brigade were called, and four firefighters showed up with all the sirens and lights going. It took them about an hour to get her out. By that time, a crowd had gathered and everyone was laughing. The firefighters were even cracking jokes.
The mum said it hurt a lot when they were trying to pull her out, and she ended up with some nasty bruises on her hips. The firefighters had to detach the swing, take off the base, and twist the bars so she could squeeze her hips through.
When she was finally free she was relieved but also deeply embarrassed, particularly because the kids now had one swing less to play on.
In 2020 a teen got stuck in a children's swing while making a TikTok video. Layani Maclean and her friends had been taking turns on the swing with her friends as they filmed their video. She also had to be rescued by firefighters.
