4/22/15 - The Clare Herald reports that a young boy was rescued after becoming trapped on top of a 13-foot boulder in Ballyreen, Ireland, a popular bouldering area. The child climbed up the side of the block on his own, but then could not get himself down. His mother then flagged down a tour bus for help, who called the coast guard. Two volunteers were then able to climb the block, secure a harness to the child, and lower him.

Read the full story on The Clare Herald, and remember: always have a plan to get down before you go up.
