TWO IRISH toddlers had a lucky escape today when they accidentally got locked in to a flat in Drimnagh, Dublin.
It’s so far unknown how the pair ended up alone and trapped in the upper-floor flat, but Dublin Fire Brigade quickly came to the rescue, using a 10.5 metre-long ladder to gain access to the children.
There’s unlikely to be an investigation into the incident as both children were “no worse for wear” according to the rescue team.

Most likely the toddlers found it more exciting than anything to watch the firefighters haul themselves up the long ladder and climb in through the window—what kid didn’t have a fascination with fire engines at that age?
A happy ending for all, and a story that the family will be telling for years to come.
Cheers to the heroic Dublin Fire Brigade for everything they do!
