From The Trussville Tribune Staff Reports
TRUSSVILLE – Most teenagers dream of fame in the form of a modeling, musical or acting career, but one Trussville teenager has been thrust into the national spotlight for a very unlikely reason.
Darby Risner, 15, was trapped in a Barney head for 45 minutes and had to be extracted by the Trussville Fire Department. Now, Rinser’s story has not only made her famous in the state of Alabama, but nationwide, with the story being picked up by many national news outlets.
Rather than having the fire department come to them, Risner and her friends loaded up in the car, going to the fire department themselves, so as not to attract too much attention to the situation.
Trussville Fire Lt. Vince Bruno said they had to eventually make some release cuts in the back of the head to remove the Barney head from Risner.
