Corby firefighters swing into action to rescue trapped youngster
The baby swing was too snug for the 12-year-old
A pre-teen had to be cut out by firefighters from one of the swings in the recently installed pirate themed play equipment at Corby Boating Lake last night (Monday).
A 12-year-old had been playing in a baby swing when they became jammed in the seat and unable to free themselves.
A crew from Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue was called to extract the girl.
A spokesman for the fire and rescue service said: "One appliance from Corby was called yesterday (Monday, April 26) at 6.46pm to reports of a person being stuck in a baby swing at the park at the Boating Lake in Cottingham Road.
"The crew used small gear and a Milwaukee saw to release the 12-year-old girl, who was not injured, before leaving the scene at 7.03pm."
