Firefighters take the Mannequin Challenge

Firefighters from Avon Fire & Rescue Service (AF&RS) have taken on the Mannequin Challenge, a viral video craze which started in America.

Thousands of videos have been posted on social media of people standing completely still - like mannequins in a shop window.

Avon Fire & Rescue Service’s short film highlights the dangers of using a mobile phone while driving by showing firefighters rescuing a ‘casualty’ from a mock road traffic collision.
