Scaffolding Calgaryhas recently been used by emergency workers to take out an obese teenager from her home to carry her to the hospital in Wales. This incident occurred in London. The emergency workers had to break through the walls of her house to take her through it and carry her to the ambulance. Scaffolding though primarily used in construction sites have been used for rescuing the teenager. This marks a major landmark in the use of scaffolding. The scaffolding used for rescuing the teenager was strong enough to withstand so much weight. The good quality of the scaffolding used for this purpose is much to be credited for the success of this mission of rescuing the obese teenager. Scaffolding Calgary has therefore progressed much from its days when it was used only in the construction sites.
This rescue mission organized by the emergency worker’s team involved the breaking of the wall of the second floor of the small house in which the obese teenager lived. The scaffolding was used as a ramp to lower the teenager to the ground level and to prevent her fall. The unidentified teenager was later taken to the hospital and admitted there. However her medical condition has not yet been divulged by the hospital authorities. After questioning the neighbors it was found that her weight has risen to about eight hundred and thirty five pounds. This brings another grave point to the forefront.United Kingdomis among the few countries which have witnessed a gradual rise in the number of obese people in their population. More than sixty percent of the adult population inUnited Kingdomis obese. About one third of the children aged between ten and eleven years old are obese. This is quite similar with the reports found fromUSAalso.
