If you have not yet heard about the ‘baby shark challenge’ then consider yourself relatively lucky.
For those of you who have so far managed to swerve the visual spectacle of the ‘baby shark challenge’ then we are pleased to share with you what will probably be your first visual experience of the marvel of dance, combined with the soothing undertones of a popular children’s song.
Having a small child myself means that I have had to listen to the soundtrack behind this challenge many times now and I am pleased to report that the ‘baby shark’ song has now been banned, for an indefinite period of time, from my household as my ears simply cannot take the audio pain anymore.
However, once I muted the video in order to escape the ‘song’ then I did enjoy watching my firefighting oppos as they attempted to unleash some serious ‘dance'(!?) moves, as you can see for yourself in the video below.
The video was made by Firefighters in an attempt to raise people’s awareness regarding water safety during the summer holidays.
And considering that the video has been viewed almost 150,000 times (not yet including your view) then I would say that Leicestershire Fire & Rescue Service have done a pretty good job in raising awareness!
If the video ‘snippet’ / preview does not appear below, then you can click on the video title to see the video!

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
