A primary school boy in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province was stuck in a rising traffic gate while trying to take a shortcut last Wednesday.

The boy was squeezing through a small gap in the gate with a friend when a car approached and the gate rose, trapping him between the railings.

He was lifted in the air and stuck in an awkward position as the other boy made a quick escape.

Luckily, he was soon saved by a security guard on duty and passersby and, although he may have hurt his ego, the boy didn't suffer any physical injuries in the incident.

While showing sympathy for the boy, Chinese netizens criticized him for ignoring safety warnings already posted at the traffic gate.

A web user commented, "Safety is the most important thing — parents should educate their children to improve their safety awareness and help them learn good habits. I hope the naughty boy has learned his lesson through this incident."
