Stuck in a hole in Belconnen

johnboy 3 May 2009 14

The ABC has the happy news that a 31 year old drunk has needed the help of the fire brigade to get out of a hole last night at the Belconnen Skate Park.

Some practice for the rescue team and a trip to hospital for facial injuries ensued.

Yep. Leaving an uncovered hole around… he’ll be beseiged by ambulance-chasing lawyers on Monday.

I’m guessing it’s the bowl that skaters use. I once rode down into it in a bread crate. I wasn’t drunk, but it was dam hard to get out of.

yeah don’t ever get stuck down there when its raining – not much fun trying to get out

I went into the bowl in a shopping trolley….

In retrospect, not a plan I would recommend to others.

It must of been some fall if he needed the fire brigade to get him out and presumably an ambulance to get him to hospital, I wouldn’t really wish that sort of injury on anyone – sober or drunk.

I’ve been patiently waiting for someone to say “yep, Belconnen. It’s a hole you don’t want to be stuck in.”

Unfortunately I’ve been bitterly disappointed.

The practice of ‘bread-crating’ was popular in the mid 90’s. It’s nice to see the bowl is still there!

I think we need to see a picture of this bowl…

Ah! Now I get it (thanks Dvaey). I’ve never seen one like that. Quite a good drunk trap. You could grease the edges and have all kinds of fun on a Saturday night.

rofl – totally grease the edges, drop a few bags of Doritos in the middle too. It’s the perfect trap

small line of vb bottles, ending in a greased ramp.

I used to ride trolleys, bread crates, etc there, but the best bowl for capture and bugger all way to get out was the charnwood bowl.
