Roof rescue at Hiawatha

(Texted photo)

Unusual call for firefighters tonight – a roof rescue at Hiawatha Community Center. A 14-year-old boy got stuck on the roof and firefighters from Engine 29 and Ladder 11 were called to get him down, which they succeeded in doing a short time ago. No other details on why he was up there or how he got up there – the center, as we’ve reported, has long been closed.

    One very embarrassed kid!  My guess is he saw a challenge or was dared to climb the building. 

    Good no one was hurt, and awhile ago a teenage girl got stuck in a bucket swing and had to be helped our by the SFD, her friends took pictures for posterity.

    Read the headline, saw the kid’s age, and immediately had to check to make sure my kid was still home!
