Police were last night looking for a 48-year-old man after his seven-year-old son was found trapped between a wooden door and security gate of the family's flat in Tuen Mun. The man went to the mainland leaving his only son alone at home in Oi Tak House, Yau Oi Estate, after picking up the boy at school about 3pm on Tuesday, police said. Officers were called in when a neighbour found the boy trapped between the door and gate. The boy was freed before emergency officers arrived.
