Big Ears Can Save Your Life
Ming, Ming a six year old boy in China, was saved from the certain death of an eight-story fall when his head got stuck in the bars of a window after he fell through. He is believed to have wandered to the window while looking for his grandfather, who had left him sleeping to run an errand. The only thing that prevented from plunging straight through the grate to his death by his ears. Yes his ears, dumbo years are not only good for flying they are good for saving you from falling as well. Due to his ears, Ming Ming was left dangling high above the street, to the terror of passers-by below.
His screams, audible at street level, alerted them to his life-threatening predicament. Don’t move, Ming Ming! Firefighters work to save a six-year-old boy whose head got stuck in a window grate… eight stories up. Ming Ming appears to be praying as workers fight desperately to free him. Emergency services raced to save him, worried the weight of his body might pull him through the bars or cause him to suffocate. They used a hydraulic pressure expander to force the bars apart and pulled Ming Ming back into his family’s flat. A large crowd gathered on the street below as they carried out the rescue.
Truly this was a close call, and truly miraculous.
