SUZHOU, CHINA - Firefighters rushed to rescue a 6-year-old girl after she got her head stuck in between two walls at a primary school in Lingbi county in China’s Suzhou city. The incident reportedly happened during lunch break at noon.
Local firefighters scrambled to the scene after receiving the emergency call and found the girl’s upper body sandwiched between walls. The little girl was yelling and crying while her mother held her lower body in an effort to ease her child's pain. The slightest moves would cause her to cry, according to authorities.
Firefighters first tried to destroy one wall, but later abandoned the plan as the wall turned out to be a load-bearing wall. Finally, they used abrasive papers to sand the wall and applied lubricating oil--to literally "file down" the wall. They propped the girl's chin and lifted her head upward, finally freeing her from the narrow gap. Miraculously, she was not hurt from the incident.
