In a nailbiting moment, a Chinese girl saved her brother after he nearly hanged himself by mistake while playing with a plastic barrel at his residence in Beijing.
According to a video clip circulated on social media platforms, the child is seen getting stuck in the gate’s hinge after falling over the barrel.
The video showed a small child standing on a barrel, while there was a rope tied in the form of a noose tied to a gate behind him.
The barrel rolled from under his feet and his neck was stuck in the noose until he almost died.
A child younger than him tried to save him with his smart behaviour by bringing the barrel closer to his feet to stand on it, but to no avail.
The older sister ran towards him and lifted the boy up to free him from the noose and saved him from dying.
After his sister succeeded in saving him, his mother came to the rescue. The boy blacked out and later regained consciousness after medical assistance.
