A 12-year old boy from Rathcormac had his head trapped under the railings at a local playground last weekend when he skidded off a merry-go-round in a freak accident.
The panic-stricken boy frantically struggled to release his head and was eventually set free from the terrifying ordeal by a local man who came to his assistance.
The young man sustained various cuts and punctures to areas of his head. An ambulance was called to the scene and the boy was taken to Cork University Hospital for further medical appraisal.
