CRAWCROOK, Eng. – A 105-year-old got just what she wanted for her birthday: a group of burly firefighters clamoring through her bedroom window.
Ivena Smailes lives in a senior care home in Crawcrook, England. Staff told ABC News that every year, Ivy gives them a special task for her birthday. This year, she wanted some hunky firemen to climb through her window.
Staff at Addison Court Care Home made it happen, scoring five firefighters from Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Services who were more than happy to help celebrate Ivy’s birthday.
Staff at the senior care home say Ivy has a great sense of humor, so they weren’t at all surprised when she made the somewhat odd request.
The celebration included cake and singers, who performed Ivy’s favorite tunes by Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra.
Ivy isn’t slowing down either. She already has big plans for her next birthday: to meet Prince Harry.
