A left-behind boy in Shanhuang village of Southwest China's Guangxi was saved by firefighters more than one hour after being trapped in a 20-cm-wide gap between two walls on Saturday.

The 8-year-old boy got stuck in the gap while playing hide-and-seek game at around 4:00 pm. He went into the gap, whose width ranges from 10 cm to 40 cm, from its widest end but got trapped in the middle.

The firefighters arrived at 5:14 pm after receiving an emergency call at 4:37 pm. After comforting the nervous boy, they covered his head and body with quilt to shield him from any possible injury and successfully got him out after 10 minutes by widening the gap around him.
