A dare went horribly wrong leaving a teenager stuck in a playground swing for 90 minutes.
The 14-year-old girl had to be cut free by firefighters from the swing, designed for toddlers, at a park in Aldinga, South Australia.
They used hydraulic cutters to release her and the council had to replace the swing after the youngster became trapped.

Paramedics also attended alongside a crew from the County Fire Service (CFS) but the teenager was not injured.
The incident took place on April 5 with the swing replaced by Onkaparinga Council the following day.
Pictures of the dramatic rescue posted on social media showed three firemen working to get the girl free while a group of her friends watched on.
Aldinga Beach CFS brigade captain Luke Trewartha told Daily Mail Australia the girl had been on a school trip.

He said: ‘It was our crews who did the rescue at this incident. It ended up one female teenager stuck in a children’s swing seat.
‘I believe the teens were in some sort of school excursion with multiple bus loads of students present.
‘Crews in the end had to use hydraulic cutting equipment to free the casualty.’
City operations director Kirk Richardson told the Southern Times Messenger the replacement cost $250.
The publication reported the group of girls attended the St Peter’s Girls’ School in Adelaide and the girl’s family thanked the fire service and her friends for their help.
