19 crew on heavy shift

The People - - News Features S -

AT least 19 fire­fight­ers were in­volved in re­mov­ing an obese woman who got lodged in a chair.

Am­bu­lance staff called the fire ser­vice – who sent a lift­ing plat­form.

It took an hour to get the poorly woman down the stairs and out of her house in Whitchurch, Hants, so she could be taken by am­bu­lance to hos­pi­tal.

A spokesman said her con­di­tion was de­te­ri­o­rat­ing so “they needed to get her out quite quickly”.
