VIDEO: Boy gets stuck in window grate; dangles outside 5th floor apartment

Boy Rescued From Grate

Residents and firefighters rescued a boy stuck between the bars of a window grate outside a fifth-floor apartment on Saturday in Taiyuan, the capital of north China’s Shanxi Province.

The 6-year-old boy locked himself in the apartment and got trapped in the grate bars when playing near the window after his mother had gone outside. Seeing the dangerous situation, two neighbors climbed the grate and tightly held onto the boy who was dangling outside the window. Another young man then stood outside the window on the fourth floor to lift the boy’s legs.

Firefighters quickly sawed the apartment door open and cut the grate bars off to rescue the boy. The boy is in good condition.
