(Updated at 1:20 p.m.) A technical rescue team from the Arlington County Fire Department freed a child who got his head trapped between a railing and a wall this morning.

The incident happened around 11:15 a.m. on the third floor of a building on the 4200 block of Fairfax Drive in Ballston.

According to a photographer on the scene, the victim was a four-year-old boy at the Kinhaven School, a preschool. Firefighters dismantled the railing to free the child, we’re told. He was reportedly evaluated by medics and transported to the hospital as a precaution.

A fire marshall was called to the scene to help investigate what happened.

An ACFD spokesman could not be reached for additional information.
