A little boy has been rescued after getting his leg stuck in an awkward spot at Abernethy.
Three year old Liam slipped on a trailer yesterday afternoon, with his leg becoming wedged between two steel bars.
The Cessnock District Rescue Squad was called and managed to free him quickly.
"Our volunteers used their battery operated combination tool to slightly spread the bars apart and Liam’s leg was freed within seconds," the squad said.
"He was very brave and not a tear was shed while we were there. A little overwhelming for him, but he seemed to take it all very well."
