What’s the wo-rst thing that you think could happen to you? Whatever it was, think again. This dad knows sheer te-rror after his 3-year-old son fell down a fa-ulty manhole in China.
The unfortunate incident no doubt sho-ok him, but his quick thinking and heroic ac-tions may have saved his son’s life. A curious three-year-old child stepped on a br-oken manhole cover and f-ell inside last week.
The incident was reported from Zunyi city in southwest China’s Guizhou province. A CCTV footage of the incident shows the boy walking along a street when he stood on the cr-acked manhole cover.
As the boy approaches the manhole, his parents can be seen trying to get him before he falls down. However, the boy steps on the cover and falls. The video clip shows the father leaning down, supported by a passerby, to p-ull the child out of the hole.
The boy escaped the acc!dent without any serious inj-uries. He su*fered minor bruises, though. As soon as the police were informed about the acc!dent, they attended the scene and contacted the relevant authorities to get the manhole repaired. The video did not take much time to go viral. While some net-izens were sh*cked to see the video, others said that the incident is every parent’s nightmare.
A user wrote, “You can actually spot the moment when he thinks about doing it, then does it anyway.” While another noted, “Very lucky boy.” A third user said, “Poor little thing. Well done dad.”Last month, a nine-year-old boy who was busy playing a game on his mobile phone fa!led to notice the edge of a platform and fe-ll on the electric train tracks. The incident was reported from Russia.

The pan!cked child ran along the railway track before an employee of the station brought him back to safety. Though the boy did not su*fer any inju-ries, he was taken to a nearby hospital for examination. What was going through this kid’s mind? Maybe he had watched IT the day before, or just wanted to meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? It’s likely it was just cur-iosity, but we can joke now that we know everyone is safe and unhu-rt.
