His “friends” abandoned him in the play area in Vallejo after he lubed up the swing with some laundry detergent (I bet they didn’t have that on them to start with) and was trapped there for a total of nine hours.
The anonymous (embarrassed) youth was discovered, swaying back and forth and screaming at the top of his lungs, by the groundskeeper. He was there from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, October 22nd.
The fire department had to detach the swing with the man’s legs still in it, and take him to the nearest Kaiser Permanente, where they cut it off of him with a small saw.
[Random fact: just three days later, a man in Laguna Hills, California, was found stuck halfway inside a hollow tree truck]
