Birthday Bouncy Castle Thwarts Suicide Attempt
Sometimes using an unorthodox way to solve a problem actually works. Trained negotiators were called to a tense stand-off when a distressed man, standing inches from the edge of the roof of a multi-storey car park threatens to leap to his death.
Faced with a desperate situation, Swansea Police thought outside the box and called in an inflatable castle from Bop And Bounce to break his fall.
The company they contacted, Bop And Bounce, brought one of their products to the scene and inflated it on the ground beneath the spot where the man was standing.
Fortunately it was not required thanks to a team of three negotiators who eventually persuaded the elderly man to abandon his suicide threat that lasted more than seven hours.
The castle was soon deflated and the 64-year old man was taken to a local hospital.
