Police responded to a barricade situation at a suburban Philadelphia home late Thursday afternoon.

SWAT team could be seen responding to the home near Plaza and Spruce streets in Marcus Hook where a woman was holed up with her children after a children and youth services worker came to the home to take the children, said police.

Video posted to social media showed people standing outside as police used a bullhorn to try and contact someone inside the home.

After more than two hours, the situation ended peacefully as everyone got out of the home unharmed, said police.
