One-year-old’s head stuck in darbuka in Turkey, rescued by fire crews
A one-year-old baby’s head got stuck in a darbuka, a traditional drum, while he was playing it in Istanbul on Jan. 9.
The strange incident occurred in Istanbul’s Bağcılar district. Bünyamin Yurtcan reportedly put his head inside the darbuka while he had been playing with it. The baby started to cry when he could not manage to get his head out.
After Yurtcan’s parents attempted to remove the drum and failed, fire crews freed him by cutting the darbuka open. He was taken to the hospital for treatment.
No details were given on how baby Yurtcan, who could not even walk, managed to have his head stuck in the drum.
