A boy of five was left stranded in a tree at school because of a bizarre health and safety policy - which banned teachers from helping him down. The mischievous pupil climbed the 20ft tree at the end of morning break and refused to come down. But instead of helping him, staff followed guidelines and retreated inside the school building to observe from a distance so the child would not get distracted and fall.

The last time I ever climbed a tree was to retrieve my 9 iron...30 feet.......how it got stuck up there I have no idea.
Your wife named Elin?
Isn’t it amazing how quick it happened too? It’s like once the hall monitor (America) became the “cool parent” handing out beer to minors, the entire student body (the World) turned into rabid monkeys.
Less than 2 years and Barack Obama has succeeded in turning the world on its ear.
There solution will be to cut down every tree on any school area.
Can these people wipe their butts without gov’t instructions?
The kid should have made a gun using his fingers.
The teachers AND the principal would have come running, climbed the tree and carried the kid down, berating him the whole time.
No kiddin.’ Great analogy.
On an episode of the Simpsons Bart was knocked out cold and needed mouth to mouth. Principle Skinner said that he couldn’t touch Bart because he was afraid of being sued by the parents. As one of the students came to help Bart Skinner screamed “No! I’ll take a dead child over a lawsuit anyday!”
It is worse than you think...read this article it will make you mad as hell...the police just stood around while a 5 year old girl drowned. They might have hurt themselves....
Can you imagine what would happen if Germany attacked England today....these PUSSIES would all be under their desk sucking on their thumbs crying for their mommies....
In 21st century PC Britain - foppish loosed bowelled fumbling hand ringing pussies.
How could these so-called ‘’MEN’’ just stand around while this little girl was drowning?
Where`s people like Lenny Skutnick when you need them??
If you remember Lenny jumped into a FROZEN river to rescue someond from a plane crash
That entire country has been turned into a bunch of limp wristed wimps. Churchill is spinning in his grave.
What a disgrace to British manhood.
Well, you know, it takes a village. Oh wait...
Maybe they could have cut the tree down so he could step off the branch onto the ground? It would remove an obvious dangerous nuisance near the school.
Where is Benny Hill when you need him?
Isn’t that some kind of child abuse/neglect? I’m sure that if I left my child stuck in a tree, I’d be arrested.
