A 13-year-old boy in Fuzhou, China, broke his right arm into three parts after sticking it into a washing machine

Sin Chew Daily reported that in August this year, the boy wanted to take a video for the TikTok application, a platform for sharing videos. 

He attempted to grab clothes in the wash before his arm was broken by the high-speed spin of the washing machine.

His family then found him screaming next to the washing machine

Sina reported that after examination by a doctor, the 13-year-old's arm was swollen, out-of-shape, and he couldn't move his thumb anymore. 

"Luckily the boy got his arm out in time, his skin could have been torn as well," a doctor told Sina.

He can now move his arm freely.
