Video: Firefighters fight back after getting pelted with snowballs
Some teens were throwing the snowballs at the firefighters while standing above them while on a bridge

LEEDS, England — This group of excitable youngsters need to learn to pick their battles after they started a snowball fight with a group of firefighters and ended up completely soaked.
Footage has emerged online showing a gang during Britain's latest cold snap causing trouble in what is believed to be Leeds. The video shows a firefighter standing on a boat about to use a giant hose when a cheeky teenager on a bridge above throws a snowball that hits him on the head.
His friends then try to hit the member of the emergency services with even more snowballs. But within seconds the victim turns on the pump on his hose and starts shooting water up at the offenders, leaving them drenched through.
