The 5-year-old boy got his finger stuck in a seat belt buckle on the school bus last week.
According to officials, firs-responders made several attempts to remove the belt buckle from his finger with oil, ice, and a ring cutter.
Due to the length of the entrapment, officials say there was significant access of fluid collecting in his finger, so more extreme measures had to be taken to remove the buckle.
The buckle was removed with a Dremel tool and a high-speed diamond cutter without injuring the child.
The boy was evaluated and released from the hospital.
According to officials, he kept the buckle as a “souvenir.”
