A pair of well meaning, if inept, security guards are having the shit ripped out of them online for their pretty poor efforts to put out a raging apartment fire.
When a fire broke out in the apartment block the men were guarding, they utilised all their skills and training (AKA none) to combat the blaze and grabbed a hosepipe to tackle the flames, the Mirror reports.
Unfortunately for the two would-be fire-fighters, the water pressure in the hose wouldn’t have been enough to put out a candle let alone a house fire, but at least the bushes got watered.
In the clip, which was uploaded to YouTube by Bala RulZ on April 3, has already been watched more than 134,000 times and while most enjoyed laughing at the security guards’ efforts, others defended them.
Most pathetic firefighting effort ever? Security guards respond to flat blaze in the feeblest way possible -… https://t.co/uISMd96R1l

One user wrote: “Well at least they fucking tried. what did you expect? they are just security guards.”
Another viewer decide to be a bit more sarcastic, adding: “Solid problem solving.”
Personally I’m on the security guards side and even though they were pretty shitty fire fighters they get ‘A’ for effort from me.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
