A FOUR year old boy in China was freed by rescuers after he fell from a balcony – becoming lodged in a 25cm gap between two walls.

The boy was playing on the balcony of the apartment complex when he got stuck between the two walls – three stories up.

He was pulled out after rescuers chiselled through one of the two brick walls, state media reported.

It took rescuers two hours to free the boy, from Jinhau City in Zheijan province, however he escaped with only some minor bruising and a bump on the head.
