A young boy in southern Vietnam’s Ben Tre Province found himself trapped between the walls of two buildings for an hour while trying to chase a cat, police said after their successful rescue effort.
The boy, seven-year-old Hung Manh, was crying, completely stuck, and complaining of an injured leg when someone finally found him.
Over a dozen rescue workers were sent to save the boy.
Some tried to reassure him and provide him with more oxygen while others carefully made a hole in one of the walls to prevent him from suffering further injuries.
One hour into the rescue effort, the child was finally extracted, to the applause and relief of family members and neighbors.
