Boy Dangling By Head From 5th Storey Balcony

By June 29, 2018

A 4-year-old boy from Pingtung City, Taiwan, was left unsupervised where he got onto the balcony, caught between the steel grates and was left dangling by his head.

The grill surrounding the balcony prevented the 4 year old from falling to his death where he got stuck.

Firefights used a ladder truck and abseiled down to the 5th floor to rescue the boy, who received minor injuries to the head and ears.

The parents have been fined for leaving the child home alone and for violation of Article 51 of the Children and Juvenile Welfare and Protection Act.
