SCDF personnel quickly get to work, propping up a ladder on the playground structure.
One SCDF officer climbs onto the playground railing, supporting the ladder as well as ensuring the safety of the girl.
The young girl gets into a squat position as she readies herself to climb down the ladder with the help of 2 SCDF officers.
As she descends, an SCDF officer continues to support her from behind, making sure she does not fall.
Soon enough, the girl, who appears shaken, reaches the safety of the ground before being led to a stretcher.
MS News has reached out to SCDF for more information on the incident.
