Child's play gone wrong; Kid's head gets stuck in steel pot; rescued
Alappuzha: A seemingly funny child’s play escalated to an unexpected end. A steel pot used like a helmet got struck and required the aid of fire and safety personnel to relieve the kid from the pot.
The incident happened at Kattakuzhi in Alappuzha. One-year-old Kashinathan, son of Cheruthoppuveetil Rakesh and Sreelatha was playing with his 5-year-old brother. While playing, the elder brother put a steel pot on Kashinathan’s head like a helmet. However, it got stuck on his head.
Though the parents and other locals nearby tried to pull off the pot, it did not come out. The fire and rescue personnel and police were informed. However, when officers from Thakazhi station, which is 7 km away, rushed to the spot, the railway gate on Vadakkenada was closed. So the parents took the boy in a police jeep taking the alternative road. The officials removed the pot by safely cutting the pot.
