A four-year-old boy became stuck in a narrow gap between two walls when he tried to pick up a dropped toy in Guangdong Province recently.

Firefighters hurried to the scene after receiving an emergency call. They found the boy stuck in a gap about 6 meters deep and only 15 centimeters wide, no wider than an adult's hand — his clothing had been pulled up over his head as he slid down.

The scared boy kept crying and struggling to get free due to the heavy dust and loud noise caused by the rescue effort.

In consideration of his mood, firefighters decided to use low impact drills to pierce through a solid wall instead of large-scale tools, meaning that it took them about four hours to finally free the boy.

Later, the property company found a worker to cover the gap with an iron sheet to avoid anyone else becoming stuck in the future.

The boy was not injured in the incident.
