Little Boy's Stuffed Animal Rescued From School Rooftop in Cape Coral

After a child threw a fellow student’s beloved stuffed bear onto the roof of the Heritage Charter Academy in Cape Coral, Florida, in early March, local police and fire crews pulled together to rescue it.

Principal Shelly Homan said a first-grader had thrown a kindergarten student’s Rockstar Freddy toy onto the roof. Students then appealed for help from School Resource Officer Carl Cannady, who called on a nearby fire crew for assistance.

This footage shows a firefighter using a cherry picker to reach the rooftop and retrieve Freddy, who is then reunited with his thankful owner, Ashton. Ashton squeezes the bear tight before high-fiving the firefighter in thanks. Credit: Cape Coral Police and Fire Depts via Storyful
