According to NST, the boy’s foot was stuck in the drain hole for almost two hours before the firemen were called! 

Operation commander Ishzahwati Supardi said the department received an emergency call at 8:51 pm and eight firemen and an ambulance were dispatched to the scene. 

“It is understood that at the time of the incident, the victim and his siblings were taking a bath when his foot slipped into the uncovered hole.

“He was stuck for almost two hours before we were called to help free him,” said Ishzahwati.

She added that the team took about an hour to try and free the boy and during the period, firemen had to play cartoon videos in order to keep the boy calm.

Fortunately, he did not suffer any serious injuries and was given treatment.
