But sometimes, this child play becomes serious and the fact that they are alone makes the whole scenario more dangerous. One 12 year old boy found this playing alone thing can be dangerous. Find out how and what happened?
1 The boy and how he got stuck
12 year old Aduragbemi Saka used to play near a café near his house in a small town of Oduduwa in the Ondo state of Nigeria. He used to visit there to play alone sometimes and one such game proved almost fatal for him. While playing near the café, he fell down a crack in a wall and a house that was wide enough to engulf him completely. He started crying and calling out for help, but due to some reasons, no one heard him. So in order to keep himself calm, he began to talk to himself and kept singing and shouting for help at regular intervals. However minutes turned into hours and eventually a day passed and no one heard him crying or calling for help and Saka was left all alone in the gap in the dark.
2 The time spent stuck and finally the rescue operation
Saka spent a total of 3 days in the gap, without food or water and only thing keeping him sane was singing and shouting for help. Saka’s grandmother was concerned and was looking for him and somehow she hear faint crying and call for help from the place where Saka was playing. One lady who lives nearby, Felicia Olaniyi said, ”I asked my neighbours if they were aware of the strange voice inside the wall and they were also confused about what was going on there.’ Eventually police was called and they lowered down a ladder to see what was making that noise and Saka was found. Police then decided to use a pickaxe in order to break the wall from the outside and rescue him. He was found with one hand raised and another folded due to lack of space in the gap. He was covered in the mud and cement and was given a bath with water on spot. He was miraculously found unhurt and was reunited with his grandmother again.
