Rescuers free Chinese boy after getting head stuck

Child was unharmed during ordeal

If a small boy in China would have used his head, he could have avoided a major problem with his head.

The young boy from Hezhang County in southwest China slipped his head through a second story guardrail, but got stuck when he couldn't slip it back out.

Rescue workers had to take their time with this delicate problem while the boy was stuck in a crouching position.

Crews eventually brought in the jaws of life and expanded the hole, freeing the boy.

The first responders had to be careful not to let any piece of debris hit the child when they tore into the railing.

Medical personnel examined the boy, not finding any major injuries, allowing the crying, but safe, little boy to rejoin his grandmother
