19 crew on heavy shift
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”.
