Lady Gets Stuck in Deckchair
We have all been enjoying the lovely sunny weather that has blessed us in the last few days. That is all except an elderly lady, who managed to get stuck in her deckchair - for 6 hours!
The 83 year old was sitting on her 2nd floor balcony at her home in Scarborough, North Yorkshire on Sunday afternoon, when the chair's fabric ripped leaving her unable to move.
A passing fire crew heard her cries for help and managed to gain access through a neighbour's home freeing the distraught pensioner. She was taken to hospital for precautionary measures, but released later.
A North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "This was an unusual incident, but firefighters are trained for every eventuality.
Have you ever been stuck anywhre and had to be rescued by the emergncy services?
