As a result of the video which showed him sitting with his whole head inside a green cone, the boy earned the nickname “Penang Legend”.

During the mini-rescue operation, four firefighters surrounded him, with two holding the cone steady while one carefully sawed the top off.

Meanwhile, the boy, who seemed to be of primary school age, held onto the base of the cone with both hands.

A follow-up video the next day showed a firefighter removing the cone from the boy’s head after sawing off half of it.
