This sounds like it could be an embarrassing and traumatic situation. A tad embarrassing to parents, and traumatic for the kiddos.

Gallatin County 911 is reporting that they have received numerous calls regarding the same issue in the past month.

Children older than babies/toddlers have become stuck in swings like the one pictured below.

Children between the ages of 9 to 11 years-old have become stuck in the swings and needed to be extracted by both Bozeman and Central Valley fire crews.

Area fire departments want to remind parents that these swings do not stretch in any way and removing children from these swings can be quite difficult. They thank you in advance for your attention to this rather uncomfortable situation.
