A Mexican boy glued his hand to bed to avoid going back to school after Christmas holidays, Spain's EFE news agency reported on Tuesday.
Diego, 10, took his family's can of glue Sunday night and glued his hand to the metal headboard of his bed to avoid going back to school Monday morning after the Christmas holidays - and succeeded in his effort.
When the boy's mother, Sandra Palacios Gonzalez, realized what had happened, she unsuccessfully tried to free the child, then called for neighbours' help, but they couldn't free him either.
She later sought help from the civil protection personnel. Green Cross paramedics and members of Civil Protection from the Guadalupe municipal police eventually succeeded in freeing him by using a special solvent.
The boy remained stuck to the bed for more than two hours and succeeded in avoiding school for the day.
