A three-year-old girl was found dangling by her neck from a fourth floor window grill after her parents left her alone to go to work in China. 

Firefighters were called when passerby heard Chyou Wang's cries after she became stuck by her head in the grill, which is designed to stop burglars. 
The tearful girl was eventually freed by emergency services in the city of Guilin in Guangxi Zhuang after they broke into the flat. 

Firefighters had to widen the bars while holding on to the girl before easing her free. 

Her parents said she must have got bored or gone to look for them and somehow managed to open the window by herself.

When she got outside, it is believed she slipped and was only prevented from falling four storeys to the ground by her head. 
Pictures show the distressed child holding onto the bars with her knees up while firefighters worked. 

They said they often left her alone while they went to work and she usually just slept or watched television. 

Her parents said they shut and locked the door before leaving. 
Father Lian, 44, said: 'We never imagined something like this could have happened. 

'We are so grateful that it worked out well in the end.'
In the meantime her parents had also been located and came back to console their daughter and now promise not to leave her on her own in future.

    Good save FFs!

     

    Now I just have to hope the details are somehow misreported. I cannot begin to fathom leaving a baby home alone as they describe, or what is so deeply wrong with people that would do this if the story is correct.

    Funny thing about kids that age. They're usually not strong enough to open bars and then insert head then resend the bars. Their heads are the biggest body part.  Just have a rescuer front and back and gently push them through opening in opposite direction they entered the opening
