The video shows staff treating patients with oxygen, fitting fire alarms and one firefighter carrying a young child out of a ‘burning building’.

The mannequin challenge, which is believed to have originated in Florida, is a new viral trend, where people remain frozen in action (like mannequins) whilst a video is recorded.

A Lincolnshire touch

The people of Lincoln have also been joining in on the latest viral trend with some incredible, yet amusing footage.

The team at Dack Motor Group in Lincoln took on a Christmassy theme when they set the bar for local challengers.

The University of Lincoln swimming club also got their camera out for the mannequin challenge.

The team took the viral mannequin challenge to the next level with almost impossible underwater poses.
