Hoping for an 18 year old in a sex swing, leaving disappointed.

Stuck to my swing. So very scared...
 
2013-09-23 12:36:09 AM  
Her 911 call only said "I'm stuck to my chair. I'm so very scared."

I hate seeing older teenagers think they are being hip or ironic by playing on the little kids' playgrounds. The firefighters should have just cut the chains and told this dumb biatch to figure out the chair part on her own.
 
2013-09-23 05:18:40 AM  
Little child? She was a great, big, walloping land girl!
 
2013-09-23 05:20:51 AM  
maybe if she hadn't had that 3rd slice of cheesecake she could of slid her big ass out of the swing herself.
 
2013-09-23 05:27:40 AM  
give her a few days in there, and she would have slide right out. But honestly, I wonder if she got stuck longer due to that ass

A call to work in close proximity to a teenage girl's ass? Damnit, we're all going!

I came for that too.

Yes this is dog: I hate seeing older teenagers think they are being hip or ironic by playing on the little kids' playgrounds. The firefighters should have just cut the chains and told this dumb biatch to figure out the chair part on her own.


I used to see teenagers doing this all the time at different parks and stuff...surprisingly I never saw one of them get stuck and they were a lot bigger than this girl appears to be. I don't really see an issue with it as long as there are not little kids around who might get hurt or cannot play because of the idiots and that they don't wreck/break anything.
 
2013-09-23 05:52:08 AM  
I hope a bill was sent to her for wasting the public's money. Does the UK charge for search and rescue like some States due in the USA?

It's not an issue so much. I don't have huge problem with it, it just annoys me in a 'get off my lawn' kind of way.

perhaps not hero worship. there is however a website called uniformdating.com, for those who 'work in uniform, or who just fancy those who do', and there's a fireman in the ad

firemen as generic sexy men is not going away any time soon

She sure wrecked that swing.

Maximum humiliation necessary.
 
2013-09-23 07:35:19 AM  
I suspect this is "one-off administrative bungle that resulted in 3 fire departments getting the call out" which you can't really blame the girl for.

Systemic overreaction.

Heart attack? Send a fire truck with the ambulance.

I wonder if she was triple-dog dared to get in that swing.

Does anyone else find it odd that in a country with roughly 2% black population, ALL of the firemen on the scene are black?

the fireman are probably drawn from the local area, rather than doing a quick representative national sweep

Finsbury Park has a 44% white population, and the next two biggest groups are Black (African) and Black (Caribbean)..... so no, it's not really very odd at all.

Actually, this kind of call is why you can be charged for s&r. It's bs sending help to her

You would never be charged for anything like that in the UK because

1) It's usually not the person needing help choosing to make the call.

2) She had nothing to do with the bungle that led to three engines turning up.

3) Having a system that might discourage people calling for professional aid when needed is barbaric madness.

4) We like to say "Please" and "Thank you" a lot in the UK, like to queue, and generally like Doing The Right Thing And Not Being Arses to Others. Requiring point-of-contact payment for critical services (such as healthcare, ambulance services, fire services, etc) doesn't mix with that mindset.

Payment before rescue never happens in the USA. If you get charged for a s and r you did something stupid and officials are pissed at you for being stupid.

They have to send a fire truck with the ambulance since most patients are too fat for 2 paramedics to lift by themselves.

How are those examples overreactions?

An ambulance in my city rolls with two firefighter/EMTs. An area hospital sends a paramedic in a pickup truck, and he usually shows up 3-5 minutes later.

Let's talk about a "heart attack." How do those two men on the ambulance provide medical care and move a cardiac arrest patient out of a building? Even in apartments with elevators, how do you move the stretcher while doing CPR with two men? How do you even get your average American down from a third floor apartment in a Victorian house without help? Now let's talk about proper CPR. Three people is ideal; one pushing on the chest, one delivering breaths via BVM, and the medic watching the heart monitor, delivering shocks, starting IV, delivering his magic cardiac drugs. So who drives the ambulance to the hospital if both ambulance guys are doing CPR? Perhaps the guy in the back of the engine?

The fire engine brings two things with it: extra help in the form of three firefighters, and one of those is an immediate supervisor (lieutenent). And what does it cost to send the engine? The city's already paying for the firefighters. A heavy truck like that gets maybe 4 mpg, so maybe $2 in fuel?

I don't mean "payment before rescue". That would be insane even in the "Screw the public" USA mindset.
