- FEMAIL has rounded up images of teenagers and grown adults who tried unsuccessfully to play on jungle gyms
- Several have required assistance from police and firefighters to set them free after getting stuck
No matter their age, some adults are just big kids at heart. Really, really big kids.
But feeling young on the inside doesn’t have much impact on your physical appearance — and it most certainly doesn’t mean you can do anything a kid can do.
Unfortunately, some people have to learn that the hard way. In spite of physics, basic geometry, and common sense, adults and teens continue to try to use playground equipment designed for children, with disastrous results.
Sometimes they do so responsibility — and other times, not so much, causing them to get stuck in baby swings and jungle gyms that were never meant to fit someone their size.
Lucky for the rest of us, many of those embarrassing incidents are caught on camera thanks to not-so-loyal friends who happily snap away at the scene — even when the police have to come to help someone out of a too-small tunnel.
Whoops: FEMAIL has rounded up images of teenagers and grown adults who tried unsuccessfully to play on jungle gyms
Brilliant: Several have needed police or firefighters to come free them
Spiraling out of control: We can’t imagine why anyone would think it was a good idea to go inside one of these
Oh look, another one: Sure, it’s easy to slide in — but how to you climb out when there isn’t enough room to bend your knees?
Setting a terrible example: This 40-year-old woman and her 11-year-old neice both got stuck in baby swings in St. Levan Park, Plymouth
Don’t look so cool now, huh? It’s clear by this young man’s posture that he just gave up and embraced his fate
Think twice: It seems several of these foolhardy people are teenagers who were trying to show off — but just who this would impress is anyone’s guess
To be fair… With his shirt off, this guy does kind of look like a giant baby
Winning: This woman must have felt swell to have a group of three firemen cutting her loose
Just a tip: If you feel resistance getting into something, you’re not going to get out of it easily
Such gentlemen! This woman needed two guys to help her out of a swing
