FTFA:One of the youths interfered with the water controls, dramatically boosting the supply.  A firefighter was flung into the air and broke a bone in his back. A second sustained a twisted knee.

Whip those kids. Whip the piss right out of them.

The Fire Brigade said it was a "prank that went badly wrong", but that the power from a hose could not be underestimated.

Seems like exactly what the kids did.

Wow.  So we're gonna keep doing this all day then?  Oh well, maybe it'll start getting funny after another eight or nine hours of it.

How old are the yutes?  8 is quite different from 15 in whether they deserve to get their asses whipped or not.

Uh, usually the engine operator stays with the controls and 2) there's a bail (shutoff) on the hose nozzle.  Pushing the bail forward as in when the hose starts pushing back because of increased pressure, shuts the water off.

Wall ah.

What the fark is a fire Appliance?

Maybe you were looking for apparatus ?

The Fire Brigade has urged parents to make sure they know where their children are at night

possibly the best quote of the entire thing...

Really?

GM recalls 1,000,000 SUV's and cars due to faulty seat-belts. The Fire Brigade has urged parents to make sure they know where their children are at night.

/could be a new "thing"

I can underestimate it easily.  I'll say it's 1 psi.
Actually, that's pressure.  Not sure how to measure power from a water hose.  2 watts?

April fools jokes are rarely funny, and really I don't think being funny is the aim of this one. I do find it very interesting though...in a fark I'm getting old sort of way.

With the exception of a couple wombats, I'm not finding any of Fark's jokes funny. The reactions though... holy damn. They've made my day. Some folks just can't have their cheese moved.

I've spent more time on the not news tab today than the main tab. I'm enjoying the 10yo news.
