According to Chinese state media CCTV, the child climbed out of the fourth-floor window and fell, leaving his head stuck in between the security bars.

The boy's grandfather, who was sleeping, heard him crying and called firefighters for help.

Firefighters put a security rope around the boy's chest while they worked to free him from the rail.

Neighbors held a blanket underneath the child just in case he fell, but the crew managed to pry the bars apart and pull him back to safety.

His condition remains unknown.
