How did he get stuck? M'sian boy, 4, gets trapped in bed

Firemen had to be called in after a four-year-old boy managed to get his neck trapped between the steel rails of his bed in Malacca yesterday (Oct 27). 

Mohd Amirul Syahir Amir Hamzah endured 25 minutes of agony in the 2.50pm incident at his home in Lorong Solok Tambak, Balai Panjang, reported The Star.

His mum, Rafidah Aman, 33, said Amirul,​ her youngest son, was playing with his elder brother Mohd Amirul Syafiq, six, when he managed to get himself trapped.

“I was in the toilet when I heard a loud scream before discovering that my son’s neck was trapped in between the rails," she told the newspaper.

“My attempts to free him were futile,” she said.

Rafidah said she called the emergency line while her son continued to yell in pain.

When the firemen arrived, they found it hard to retract the rails from around his neck and had to use a cutter to free him.
