A six-year-old Chinese boy was left dangling by his ears eight stories above a bustling street after he slipped through window bars outside of his family's apartment, The Sun reported Wednesday.
Passers-by were stunned when they heard little Ming Ming's terrified screams and looked up to see him hanging by his head.
The only thing stopping the lad from plunging to his death was the fact his head was wedged between two window bars.
Horrified neighbors in Yichang, Hubei Province, could only watch as emergency services raced to the scene.
They eventually arrived and managed to use a hydraulic pressure expander to force the bars apart and pulled Ming Ming back into his apartment.
