LIVINGSTON, Mont. (AP) — Emergency responders in Livingston had to swing into action on an unusual call when a 9-year-old girl got stuck in a piece of playground equipment at the city’s M Street Park.

Livingston Fire and Rescue Capt. Mike Chambers tells The Livingston Enterprise the girl became stuck Thursday evening after getting into a swing seat with high sides and leg holes that’s designed for smaller children.

Chambers says that after the girl’s brother and then father failed to extricate her they called the fire department.

Chambers says rescuers used large bolt cutters to cut the swing and get the girl out after being trapped for about 30 minutes.

He says the girl was calm and unharmed but a bit embarrassed, and gave hugs to all the rescuers after being freed.
