A man has risked his own life to stop a little boy with his head stuck in a window grid from suffocating.

Brave Zhou Bo went outside after hearing a commotion in the street. "I went out, and saw a boy dangling in the air. His head was stuck in between the window grid." He said.

Zhou dashed inside and raced up to the flat, but found the door locked. He then went one floor below but discovered that the gap between that window and the dangling boy was too great.

Zhou said: "Without help, the boy would have suffocated soon. Or he was in danger of dropping".

Zhou found a chair and balanced it precariously on the window ledge before standing on it and supporting the trapped boy from underneath. "I felt time freeze, and my arms went numb but firemen still didn't arrive".

Help finally came some 40 minutes later, when firefighters were able to break into the apartment and pull the boy to safety. He had been left home alone.
