Boy's neck trapped between bed rails

MALACCA - 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.

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

Rafidah Aman, 33, said her youngest son was playing with his elder brother Mohd Amirul Syafiq, six.

"I was in the toilet when I heard a loud scream before discovering that my son's neck was trapped in between the rails.

"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 and had to use a cutter to free him.
