Firehouse had an article on this job. My personal opinion: You got your sorry ass up there, get your sorry ass down. This is why fire departments do not respond to cats in trees. One chief said he never found cat skeletons on the ground after receiving a call for Fluffy stuck. If a damn cat can figure how to get its butt down, how about a "intelligent?" person. If it is illegal to climb these rocks I hope the injured member finds the best available lawyer to litigate. >:( >:( >:( >:(

Those New Haven, Ct Firefighters sure did a Great job getting this UN-GREATFUL young lady off of a very, very dangerous situtation. Those New Haven Firefighters sure took some serious risk.
  Somebody said in a "sarcastic way" on another site; "Just a Routine Day for those Greedy Firefighters".
