A 10-YEAR-old Mexican boy glued his hand to his bed to avoid going back to 
school after the Christmas break, authorities say.

"I thought if I was glued to the bed, they couldn't make me go to school,'' 
the boy, Diego, said.

"I didn't want to go, the holidays were so much fun.''

"I remembered my mum had bought a very strong glue,'' he said of the 
industrial strength shoe glue he used to stick his hand to the bed's metal 
headboard, where he stayed stuck for two hours.

His mother Sandra Palacios was unable to free him and called paramedics and 
police to help.

Diego watched cartoons while they worked to unglue him, eventually using a 
spray to dissolve the chemical adhesive.

"I don't know why this happened. He is a very good boy,'' said his mother.

Diego eventually made it school a few hours late
