In my day, the girls would fit into the locker.

When I heard this call go out, I chuckled to myself and thought about the firefighters in England that were called for the girl stuck in the swing.

Lockers were bigger then. My old high school actually removed all the old lockers and made kids carry everything around with them all day because they thought the hallways weren't wide enough and kids bumping into one another was causing fights. I shiat you not.

Just slather her in Vaseline and she should pop out without much trouble.


Giggity.

I was puzzled why these hydraulic rescue devices were always referred to as the 'Jaws of Life' with capitals and yeah it's a trademarked name of Hurst Performance vehicle aftermarketers.  Nifty bit of marketing on their part (and I hate marketing).

Get out, eh?

What are these heathens doing going to school on Thanksgiving?

Oh, it's Canada. It's like a whole 'nother country.

It's good to see Marc Messier has found gainful employment post-NHL.

She couldn't come up with a more practical way to get attention, like screaming in the crowded cafeteria during lunch?

the girl became stuck after she "backed herself into a locker."

Fat bottomed girls you make the locker world go round

I always wonder how people come up with completely bizarre conclusions. 'kids are getting into more fights' 'well the hallways must have gotten too small'.
?!?!?!
How is that possibly the first thing someone would think of as a likely cause? And why are they generally so certain of it after coming up with it? I've run into several people who are utterly without the ability to perform situational evaluation, and it baffles me each time. How do they get through life? Why haven't they noticed that this is something they are bad at? Huh.

"The girl was not injured, but she was taken to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario as a precaution. "

Ahh, the Canadian health insurance program. We were up in Newfoundland a couple of years ago to visit relatives, and about every other commercial on television was for some local clinic, encouraging folks with "owies" to rush right in, so they could bill the government for treating them.

It sure beats "Jaws of Horribly Painful Dismemberment".

It's a nice, beauracratically blameless way of saying "it's actually due to budget cuts in general, but it's a lot easier to blame it on the lockers since we're the ones that set the budget.."

To be honest, I've always heard them called Jaws or Hurst tools my entire career.

Yeah. "Jaws of Life"(tm) is good for media. Not so much in everyday usage. They're usually called spreaders (to differentiate from cutters) around here, though some of the older guys call it "the tool."

Personally, I would have used the sawzall. The noise inside that locker would scare the stupid out of this girl. Or dig the air chisel out.

Firemen never call them Jaws Of Life. They're called "spreaders". They're fun as he'll to use (non emergency). It's amazing to rip a door completely off of a car with absolutely no effort.

Do you have a lot of junk cars available near you to destroy?

Most of the training is done in local junkyards using older vehicles.

It takes getting on the streets to realize the ultra-high tensile steel used in a Volvo's B Post will destroy the jaws on a standard hydraulic cutter, for example. :)

She will forever be known as "that chick that got stuck in the locker" in her town.  Heh....and rightly so.

That's what I think every time they talk to this guy on the radio.  Which happens quite a bit... there's always something burning down or someone getting stuck in a locker in Ottawa.
