Giant bell falls on man in China

Report & Video by Mark Morris

A man in China has been rescued after a two-tonne bronze temple bell fell on him and trapped him inside.

It happened during a visit to a museum in eastern China.

While the man, described as young, was looking at the bell from below, museum visitors above were repeatedly spinning it.

That caused the rope attaching the bell to the ceiling to snap.

Rescuers took a total of five minutes to lift the bell with the use of a pulley block.

The man was reportedly uninjured.
