A young boy in China's Hezhang County wasn't using his head when he got it stuck in a stone guardrail.

For reasons still being determined, the kid stuck his noggin into a balustrade in front of a government building and was unable to get it out, according to ITV.com.

Firefighters were called to the scene and managed to squeeze the kid's head back out of the stone railing using hydraulic spreading pliers, the New York Daily News reported.

After the boy was rescued, he was examined by doctors before being tearfully reunited with his grandmother, according to the Independent.
