Ionia Police Officers Free Kid Stuck In Toddler Swing [Video]

It was all in day’s work for Ionia Public Safety Officer Chris Flanders and Sgt. Kevin Heinlein.

They were called to the Fun Forest in Ionia for a unique problem. But yo, they solved it. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

A young girl decided to relive her toddler years by climbing into the safety swing on a beautiful spring afternoon. The only problem was she was too big for such nostalgia, and when she completed her ride, she found she was stuck.

After her frineds and family couldn’t retract her, Flanders and Heinlein arrived on the scene, and in a video posted to the Ionia DPS facebook page, found persistence is the only way to get a full grown kid out of the toddler swing.

Way to go, Flanders and Heinlein, you are our Citizens of the Day!!

But I really feel bad for the kid, she’s probably embarassed. Don’t be. I once put my head through the railings on our front porch and got stuck. My Mom had to get me out using Wesson oil.

For her privacy, the video can’t be embedded, but you can view it here.
