Boy gets head stuck at school

by Emma Grove

It was all in a day’s work for firefighters when they had to rescue a youngster who got his head stuck in a chair.
It happened at the Westlands School, Westlands Avenue, Sittingbourne, at about 2.50pm on Wednesday.
A crew from Sittingbourne attended the incident and were able to rescue the boy, who is thought to be 13, quite quickly.
Neil Ryder, watch manager at Sittingbourne fire station, said: “Somehow he slipped through the chair and got stuck.
“He had metal on either side of his head.
“When we got there we stood him up, turned the chair round about 90 degrees and it popped off over his head.”
Mr Ryder added that the boy had been stuck for about half an hour, but he was uninjured except for a stiff neck.
