A teenager had to be rescued by firefighters after he became trapped in a child’s swing in a Hornchurch park.
Firefighters were called to reports of a 17-year-old trapped in a swing in Hylands Park, Hylands Way on Sunday, June 10 at 10pm.
A Hornchurch firefighter told the Recorder that the 17-year-old was embarrassed but not injured by the incident.
He said: “I think [the teenager] was quite worried. He was quite a big lad for 17.
“His friends were taking the mickey out of him and filming him.”
The firefighters had to unbolt the swing to free the 17-year-old.
“He had obviously climbed in there to use the swing and then after we got him out, he walked away a bit red faced,” the Hornchurch firefighter added.
