Firefighters and police recently rescued a nine-year-old boy who was stuck between two walls in Shunde City, south China's Guangdong Province. According to the police, the boy accidentally fell into the gap between a wall and a house.

As his head and chest pressed against the walls and was unable to move, the boy soon started to show respiratory distress. The rescuers then decided to demolish a wall and, after half an hour's effort, the boy was finally rescued.

He was immediately sent to a local hospital for treatment. The boy is reported to be in good physical condition.
