Engrossed in mobile games, 6-yr-old boy finds himself stuck in toilet seat; rescued by firefighters
Beijing, March 8: Video games can sometimes invite real trouble. A six-year-old boy in Wuhan city of China recently was so engrossed in playing video games on a mobile phone sitting on a commode that his buttock and waist got stuck inside and the situation became so serious that even the emergency services had to be called in to free him.
It was found that the boy got stuck for spending too much time on the toilet seat and his parents rushed to his help when they saw him struggling to come out of the toilet seat but even they remained unsuccessful.
It was then when they called the emergency services and the firefighters had to break the seat to end the kid's ordeal. It was learnt that he was sitting on the toilet seat for an hour and half while playing games. The lower part of his body sunk into the toilet because of over-sitting, the firefighters said later.
A video of the in-house rescue operation (https://www.timesnownews.com/the-buzz/article/6-year-old-gets-stuck-in-toilet-seat-while-playing-games-on-mobile-parents-call-firefighters-for-help/378287) went viral later on the social media and it left other guardians worried.
"We couldn't use large tools in fear of causing secondary injuries on the child," an official from the local Yangchahu fire brigade told Beijing-based Pear Video.
