UK fire crews called to free teenager stuck in baby swing

The baby swings may look like fun, but they’re not. Especially when you’re not a baby.

It's really quite unfortunate.

WE’VE ALL BEEN there. Sometimes the normal swings aren’t good enough and you just want to squeeze your adult body into the baby swing.

We understand. Kind of.

Fire crews in the UK were called upon to free a 17-year-old boy, who managed to get himself stuck in a baby swing at a playground.

At first it was all a great laugh, but after realising he couldn’t free himself the teenager was forced to seek outside help.

He had been stuck in the seat for about 20 minutes when the fire department arrived.

His friends were of course on hand to film the proceedings, like all good friends should at moments of extreme pain and humiliation.

Here, the firefighters attempt to cut him out with an enormous pair of pliers:

Let this be a lesson to us all: Baby swings are for babies, not rapidly growing teenage boys.
