    Six-Year-Old's Ears Save Him From Death Fall

    A six-year-old Chinese boy cheated death when he fell out of the window of a tall building only to catch his ears in a metal grate.


    Ming Ming dangles nearly 100ft above street level




    Ming Ming was left dangling eight floors above a city street with his head stuck between the protective bars.


    The youngster screamed and bawled until he caught the attention of passers-by in Yinchang, Hubei Province.


    As a crowd gathered, horrified neighbours could do nothing to help until emergency services arrived.


    Firemen used a hydraulic pressurised expander to force open the bars and pull the terrified child to safety.


    The accident is believed to have happened after his grandfather went out on an errand and left him sleeping in the family flat.


    The boy woke up alone and is thought to have fallen out of the window while looking for his grandfather.


    Fire service spokesman Wang Shen described the escape as miraculous.



    "He could have fallen to the ground - or have been suffocated - at any minute," he said.

    One of the meanings of Ming is 'Bright' . .. . maybe a bit misplaced in this case



    Anyway, a good result. Cheers, big ears!

    He certainly is a lucky kid but a very stupid one, I would think any 5 year old, certainly mine would have enough sense not to get out of, or even go near, a 8th floor window.

    Ears come off pretty easily. Almost certainly it was his boney skull that caused him to get wedged between the bars. Small kids have a big head in proportion to body size compared to adults. Anyway, happy ending for Bigears.
