Boy rescued after three days trapped between walls

Abuja, Dec 19 (IANS) A 12-year-old boy in Ondo state of Nigeria was miraculously rescued after spending three days trapped in a tiny gap between a house and a wall, media reported on Monday.

Aduragbemi Saka was visiting a cafe alone when he started playing in 12-inches wide gap between the breeze block wall and a student house.

But he got stuck and with no relatives nearby he spent three days crying to himself — with passersby ignoring the sounds, the Mail reported.

Eventually neighbours heard the boy singing to himself and they looked inside the gap to see him curled up in a ball.

The police smashed through the wall and pulled him out covered in dust but still alive in the Oduduwa area.
