Boy Glues Hand to Bed to Avoid School

A 10-year-old Mexican boy dreaded returning to school after Christmas break so much that he glued his hand to his bed. Sandra Palacios spent nearly two hours Monday morning trying to free her son Diego's hand with water, oil and nail polish remover before calling authorities.

"I didn't want to go to school because vacation was so much fun," the boy said.

Palacios said Diego sneaked into the kitchen in the early morning to get the industrial glue, which he then slathered on his right hand. She didn't hear him get up, but later awoke and found him watching TV with his hand stuck to the bed.

Diego's hand was fine, and paramedics managed to unstick him in time for class.
