This five-year-old had a lucky escape when he got his arm caught in a meat grinder!

The little boy from China poked his hand inside the machine for 'fun', but got it well and truly stuck.

He was rushed to hospital where doctors initially planned to amputate three of his fingers to free him.

However firefighters came to the rescue when they decided to try and crack open the metal pipe the boy's arm was stuck in using their specialist equipment.

The rescue effort was successful and doctors were then able to save the little boy's arm, hand and fingers.

And we thought a toddler getting his potty stuck on his head was bad enough...
