Talk about your post-break blues. Diego, a 10-year-old boy in Mexico, hated

watching television. She then spent about two hours trying to free her son’s hand,
using water, oil and nail polish remover before calling police, Monterrey police chief

“I didn’t want to go to school because vacation was so much fun," the boy told
Unfortunately for Diego, paramedics were able to unstick him in time for school.
