Fire fighters rescue boy climber

A four year old boy was rescued by fire fighters after becoming trapped in a climbing frame in Lauderdale park in Dunbar, East Lothian yesterday evening (25 March 2012).

The boy had to be cut free when his arm became trapped in a metal part of the climbing frame by fire fighters using a grinder and reciprocating saw. They were able to remove the child’s arm which was still trapped by the metal pole before safely releasing his arm.

The child was checked over by an ambulance crew and did not require hospital attention.
