Little girl 30ft up on roof

First published in News by

A TEN-YEAR-OLD girl was rescued after climbing onto the roof of a house.

Firefighters using an aerial ladder platform rescued the girl from a 30ft drop in Station Avenue, Wickford, at about 6.30pm yesterday.

The specialist equipment was brought from Southend and firefighters in harnesses climbed onto the roof to save the girl.

Leading firefighter Mick Thorne(CORR), of Southend Fire Station, said: “Once we got her she seemed quite calm.

“It’s just what we do. It was a good rescue and a good outcome.”

Bring a parent is not just about getting pregnant, children nee to be cared for!

How on earth does a little girl get to climb on a roof?

Good grief, what a perfect set of parents we have here.

She's 10, not 2. My kids played out alone at 10!

I wasn't down the pub, I wasn't on drugs, I wasn't even at work. I was at home, cleaning and looking after the younger siblings. In essence I was a perfectly normal parent who sometimes took my eye off the ball for a second allowing the odd broken arm, or fall from a bike.

It happens.

The "odd broken arm"? My children have never had a broken limb in their life. Scrapes and falls, yes. But broken limbs is taking your eye off the ball just too often or too long.

The heck was she doing on the roof? lol.
Must have been awful for her though, especially if she was up there a while.
I remember when I used to bunk school a lot and If I left my key at home, I'd climb onto the roof above the kitchen and get in through my bedroom window, it was easy getting up, but I couldn't get down and one day I did that, some f**ker had locked my window, was stuck sitting up there for around 6 hours till my mum got home, was by far the most boring day of my life, as we didn't have mobiles with all the cool apps back then. :(

Oh rubbish, do you run behind them when they ride their bikes? I fell on my roller skates as an 11 year old and broke my arm as well. It wasn't my Mum's fault, it was just an accident.

6 kids.... 2 broken arms, 1 broken hand, 1 broken wrist and endless bumps and scrapes. They've grown into healthy adults with a respect for human limits and a whole bunch of common sense.

One of them is a firefighter... would you suggest I stand behind him on the ladder to make sure he doesn't fall off?
