Boy traps head in railings

Southend Standard: Boy traps head in railings Boy traps head in railings

FIREFIGHTERS freed a boy whose head was trapped in railings.

Two firefighters from Southend pulled apart the bars at the Jones Memorial Recreation Ground in Eastern Avenue so the boy could free his head at about 1.50pm today.

The boy, who was about 11, said he had jumped of a swing and the momentum had carried him through the railings.

Jumped 'of' a swing? hopefully who ever wrote this made a mistake and isn't like the other 99% of people here, who can't tell the difference between 'of' and 'off'.

Hopefully the family will make a donation to the fire brigade. Give the child a good ticking off, so the next question must be will the family try & sue someone in this compo claiming world?

This might seem like a daft question but...how near are the railings to the swings?? Perhaps that needs looking at.

On a positive note, at least the boy was considerate enough to have this mishap within yards of the fire station, at least they didn't have far to come!!
