Cabinet falls on boy when he tries to get tableware at kindergarten

A wooden cabinet fell onto a boy trying to get some tableware perched on top of it at a kindergarten in China.

The CCTV video, captured in Shanwei City in southern Guangdong Province on October 25, shows the boy stepping on the edge of a cabinet to try to reach the tableware placed on the top of it.

However the cabinet became unbalanced and fell forward onto the boy, landing on his head and pinning him underneath.

Two teachers walking past immediately rushed to lift the cabinet up, freeing the boy.

The child was taken to hospital and received three stitches on his head, according to reports.
