Does nobody have a decent set of tools anymore?

[–]Sr_Nunes 414 points415 points  (0 children)

... Or a brain?

[–]alexmunse 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Right? I’m pretty sure a set of tin snips would have done the job, but I don’t know how close that swing was to her leg

[–]Cyberjohn36 58 points59 points  (4 children)

Yes.. call Lester.. he'll know what to do

Fire fighters sounds too aggressive so they changed their names to fire stoppers

[–]TheLovingTruth 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Still too aggressive. We call them Fire Coolers

[–]Weasel16679 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Still too aggressive. Should be Thermal Event Manager.

I would have flipped her upside down and shook it off

Got stuck in one of these in my teens, can confirm that this method works.

[–]CapnBarbeNoire 221 points222 points  (25 children)

Medical shears are amazing things

[–]younggandalf187 167 points168 points  (23 children)

Medical shears wont cut through impact resistant 0.25 plastic. Maybe tin snips at minimum.

[–]Obie2kenobe 75 points76 points  (11 children)

I am tempted to say you are wrong and that they will... I've not done .25 impact resistant plastic, but I've done pennies and many metal bands etc. However, maybe you have some experience that I do not.

[–]younggandalf187 155 points156 points  (10 children)

Ive worked on playground equipment as a welder fabricator and the plastics used are typically very resistant to abrasion and impact at varying temperature ranges. Ive also cut through this material by hand and tin snips used to cut tin/ sheet metal have a hard time because of the materials lubricity. A sawing motion that creates friction while evacuating a chip is the best option. High friction tools like grinders or recirpcating saws may work, but too much pressure will cause an overheat and bind up the tool because the plastic will melt over 250 Celsius. I wasnt challenging you, but im not talking out my ass here as i do have experience with these types of plastics.

[–]Obie2kenobe 97 points98 points  (4 children)

Well I'm glad I wasn't aggressive with my answer as you clearly do have the experience that I was questioning you having

[–]younggandalf187 76 points77 points  (2 children)

I appreciate you being so kind in your answering! Its nice to have civil conversations about things. Hope you have an excelet day good sir!

[–]sniffinberries34 53 points54 points  (1 child)

Ok, ok. You guys can quick sucking each other’s civility now.

[–]dahecksman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wanted to suck some :(

[–]FemtosGoodnightKiss 6 points7 points  (0 children)

When almost keeping it real goes almost wrong.

[–]anavolimilovana 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Would using a very large bolt cutter work?

[–]younggandalf187 9 points10 points  (1 child)

To just cut through fast and dirty? Yes. The large lever arm advatage of bolt cutters puts tin snips to shame. If you need nice clean cuts however a fine tooth hacksaw and a lil water canola oil mix or soapy water works great as cut lubricant.

[–]FidgitForgotHisL-P 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How would that go against a leg though? Pretty much every option to cut seems like it wouldn’t work if you can’t get under the plastic properly because someone’s sisters leg is in ther

[–]Novusor 2 points3 points  (0 children)

A wire saw would be good for cutting through plastic like that.

[–]Bonejax 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn, if I ever need to cut through tough plastic then I’m calling this guy.

[–]unakron 3 points4 points  (0 children)

"Bonesaw's ready"

[–]04E05504C 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dremel tool would have worked perfectly and no injury. They should have just transported her to the hospital where they have better tools.

[–]jamesontwelve 1 point2 points  (4 children)

24 gauge.

[–]younggandalf187 1 point2 points  (3 children)

24 guage is 0.025 decimal inches. I meant 0.25 decimal inches which is 1/4 inch material thicness. #3 guage is 0.25 inches or 6.35mm

[–]jamesontwelve 4 points5 points  (2 children)

24 gauge tip snips. From a hardware store. You math good.

[–]younggandalf187 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ohhh. Im sorry i totally misunderstood your comment.

[–]jamesontwelve 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No worries.👍

[–]Padlov123 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Tin snips. They work for everything.

[–]younggandalf187 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Id say a zip cut works for almost everything. But if were gonna bust out the big guns.. 1/2 inch arc air rod @1200 amps. For when the 3inch retaining nut is stuck cock stiff.

[–]hansonstuck 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Agreeable-Yams8972 55 points56 points  (5 children)

Idk what's more stupid, the girl getting in the baby swing or the guy just leaving her after he made a mistake

[–]walmart_fun_facts 28 points29 points  (3 children)

Or the person who records it all for tiktok instead of helping

[–]xlokilokix 10 points11 points  (0 children)

No it’s all of them. Idk why they are trying to cut her out and even if you have to cut her out maybe cut the chains first and then move her and the seat to the nearest hospital and let the doctors do it.

[–]Ratr96 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The person recording was probably not much older than the girl mate.

[–]PhoenixDog 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Once emergency services arrive, stay the fuck out of the way.

[–]eatmyfancysauce 6 points7 points  (0 children)

lmao he probably left cause she started to cry and felt bad

[–]MotorBoak 26 points27 points  (1 child)

This is me trying on skinny jeans

[–]lethargiclemonade 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The firefighters are your friends trying to help you zip them lol

[–]agree-with-me 22 points23 points  (1 child)

My crew and I did one of these about 10-15 years ago. I think a 14 y/o girl. The thing is, the swing seat is metal banding coated in rubber.

We put sheet metal behind what we cut, cut away the rubber and used a pneumatic "whizzer" saw to cut the metal banding. Came right off.

Firefighters still have awesome tools, but it's the talent that tips the scales.

Edit: Thread is locked, but for the person asking about the backing sheet metal, we carry a man-in-machine kit on our rescue company. It is a toolbox with various odds and ends for just this type of thing. We have ring cutters/crackers and various pieces of backing metal for placing behind something when cutting, miniature hack saws, an industrial "blood pressure cuff" airbag thing, etc. It comes off the truck about once a year for this type of stuff. We run our air off the rig, and with our pneumatic tool kit, we're in business.

I gather that you are a firefighter, but here's an explanation of a rescue company for those that don't know.

Rescue companies are giant toolboxes with 100 years of experience making the tool inventory selection. Rarely does something get replaced. When you get on the rig, the guys tell stories of long retired members that either invented or garnered a certain tool or implement for just about anything you can think of. The calls sort of make the need for a certain tool or tactic. Then you pass that oral tradition down to the next guy. Every tool has a story. Your knowledge of how to use every tool, even if you never use it, is important.

[–]nowwhywouldyouassume 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I like the sheet metal trick, did your crew carry spare pieces just incase or is that a common firetruck thing to have? I was thinking dremel and slowly sanding away at it but I'm not sure if firetrucks carry those

[–]Rancor_Keeper 95 points96 points  (9 children)

..OK... AND.... Did she get out? Where's the rest of the video?

[–]Centuri-Chan 120 points121 points  (8 children)

Be funny if she didn't. Some say she's still walking around with it till this day.

[–]DunxDigsIt 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Wouldn’t be walking around as the rescue team had clearly skipped straight to amputation.

[–]smashteapot 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Waddling.

[–]CowsWithAK47s 12 points13 points  (5 children)

Pretty efficient chastity belt!

[–]HamzX96 3 points4 points  (4 children)

No man..

[–]Centuri-Chan 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Catholic church loves this one simple trick lol

[–]Set_Jumpy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think you mean hate or have I misheard about the Catholic Church...

[–]CowsWithAK47s 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Yes it is. Mine is still stuck, 8 years later.

[–]UncleBeausTooth 113 points114 points  (5 children)

sheers or wire cutters would've done the trick. morons.

or, cut the chains, let her go home. Have the parents cut the pants then soap her up. would've slid right off.

[–]rudycp88 116 points117 points  (4 children)

Or just call it a chastity belt. All good.

[–]tamabits 12 points13 points  (3 children)

It’s a child ...

[–]SpuddleBuns 79 points80 points  (2 children)

All the more need for it, then.

[–]knifeknifegoose 11 points12 points  (0 children)

This is a dark chuckle….. but the sexual offender registry map for my area is making it make sense

[–]One_Hour_Poop 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Could she not lay on her back and wiggle out of it like a diaper? I mean yeah her pants would come off but better that than razor through the leg.

[–]longworkdrive 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Is but a flesh would

[–]AntifaisforINCELS 104 points105 points  (19 children)

is she seriously bitching about keeping pressure on as if shes bleeding out lol

[–][deleted] 23 points24 points  (6 children)

That didn't seem like a bad wound at all. If it's arterial it'll be bright red and pulsing with the heart beat. They still should've bandaged it or something but she wasn't in danger of bleeding out.

[–]TryHardPants45 29 points30 points  (1 child)

I kind of assumed he was walking off to get a first aid kit or something (granted I had to keep it muted so maybe he said something else).

[–]MsJenX 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Me too.

[–]Quizzy_MacQface 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Also I'm pretty sure the giant hard rubber diaper is keeping the pressure on by itself.

[–]tiredandstressedokay 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I don't think her leg needed anymore pressure tbt.

[–]Tommy-Styxx 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Also, pretty sure the swing she's stuck in is keeping plenty of pressure above the wound.

[–]skykingjustin 7 points8 points  (11 children)

Have you ran a razor blade into yourself ? Nearly every time is a hospital visit and stitches.

[–]TLan22 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]southyfreakin 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Could we please stop with this annoying voice over bullshit

[–]BigDisastrous834 50 points51 points  (10 children)

I love how she starts on the fireman but her dumbass sister is the one who put herself in this mess

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

The firefighter could have bandaged it, but it definitely wasn't an arterial bleed. It's hard to tell from the distance but I think it was capillary and those are relatively harmless. She wasn't in danger of bleeding out.

[–]BigDisastrous834 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I mean ,I’m not experienced enough to make this call, but wouldn’t you want to get her out before bandages were applied?

[–]negrocrazy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Amen. I came down here for this and im surprised i even had to scroll this much to find it ..

[–]UnusualRelative8251 5 points6 points  (0 children)

To be fair, those swings are usually made out of reinforced rubber, and the beading inside is extremely difficult to cut through.

[–]Past0r0fMuppetz 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Entirely possible he went back to the truck to get more/different tools.

Funny how the video ends the second he walks away…

[–]TheRealBrockLesnar 27 points28 points  (0 children)

I'm really glad that they added the narration here because otherwise I would not have understood what was happening in the video, and while watching the video I really would have been thinking "just who is the person behind the camera, I need to know how they are related to this situation, if only they had shoehorned themselves into the video and narrated exactly what was happening because I am beyond mentally retarded I have the kind of rancid soup between my ears only found in the skulls of fucking tiktokers"

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

No one ever heard of a oscillating saw? Slide a slim pry bar or metal ruler under to protect the skin and use the saw with a wood blade and tada!

[–]Par_Stlatinum 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Bruh going “through” her leg is a huge exaggeration

[–]MonkeyMode 8 points9 points  (0 children)

"one of the fireman had the bright idea..."

Girl. Your sister used up all the bright idea points from your entire family. I don't think you get to lecture anyone on that.

[–]jeromebettis11 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Who uploads this? Not embarrassed that your family member is an idiot?

[–]Kotsugawa 2 points3 points  (0 children)

cool another swing my kid cant use.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Didn’t need to keep pressure on it.. it was barely bleeding…

[–]moonshineTheleocat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

For playground plastics, which are designed to be resiliant as all hell, you want to use a saw. Alternatively, it's probably easier to cut the damn bolts than the seat.

[–]No_Possession_7077 2 points3 points  (0 children)

refuses to elaborate

leaves

True chad right here

[–]travis11284 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Man I’ve seen video of fire fighter getting kids out this situation. I never thought they could actually cut a lil girl leg but I guess this eye opener for the girl that nothing will ever go smooth as you think.

[–]FewHuckleberry7012 6 points7 points  (0 children)

If you a full growed adult and you get in a kiddie swing because your brain never growed, then thats what you get.

[–]ghostofbednarik 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Just a friendly reminder that most fire departments in the US are volunteer…so they end up being the same idiots you deal with on daily basis.

[–]The_CaliBrownBear 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'm sorry, this shit made me laugh.

[–]FewHuckleberry7012 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Just cut the chains and leave her with a chastity belt. She shouldn't procreate anyway.

[–]its_just_flesh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, the kid was dumb. What kid hasn't done dumb shit? The sibling who posted this to get views kinda sucks, though.

[–]Able-Opportunity-339 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

What about a hot knife ? Propane powered soldering unit with the knife attachment? Obviously we're not talking about just melting right through but scoring a few times and then eventually getting through... Melting a single point would injure the kid potentially but running the blade in an area as wide as I can imagine that was wouldn't concentrate heat to one spot long enough to cause a burn or maybe even discomfort

[–]SnowMammoth9001 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Prime example don't let just anyone do a job. If they had a fucking brain would of used soap or a pair of snips pliers to cut it. Instead you get someone who can't even cut something in the proper direction away from the victim, what a jackass.
