This toddler locked himself in a car to play his video games in peace causing his parents to call the fire brigade to get him out but he carried on staring at his device oblivious to the fuss.
The incident took place in the town of Pasir Mas in the district of the same name located in the northern Malaysian state of Kelantan, and the photos were shared on Facebook by netizen ‘Kopiah kau senget’ and credited to the boy’s father.
According to local media, the family was out and about when the young boy, whose name and age were not mentioned but was called a toddler by local media, feared that his parents were going to take his electronic device away from him.
The make and model of the device has not been reported.
Reports said that he sought sanctuary in the family car, locked the doors and refused to come out so that he could continue to play his game in peace.
The parents pleaded for the youngster to unlock their car, but he reportedly ignored them and continued playing his game, leaving them with no choice but to call the emergency services.
Firefighters arrived on the scene and had to break into the car to rescue the young boy, according to local media.
Eyewitnesses said that the child remained oblivious to the noise and rescue operation going on outside the car windows.
It is unclear whether the toddler finished his game before the firefighters eventually broke into the vehicle.
