Trampoline Blown Against Utility Pole During Storm Barra

A fire crew was called to remove a loose trampoline that was propped against a utility pole in Kilkenny, as Storm Barra brought strong winds and heavy rain to Ireland on December 7.

Police warned residents to secure objects like trampolines and garden furniture during the storm and said the possibility of injury from the loose trampoline could have been “huge.”

Footage sent to Storyful by Emily Keane shows the trampoline pushed against the power line with a fire crew at the scene.
