A robot broke a seven-year-old boy’s finger during a chess tournament at Moscow in Russia.

 The incident happened after the kid went for a swift move without waiting for the necessary time for the chess-playing robot to complete its action.

The vice president of the Chess Federation of Russia, Sergey Smagin has informed that the boy is fine. However, his fingers have been fractured.

“The boy is all right. They put a plaster cast on the finger to heal faster. Yes, there are certain safety rules and the child, apparently, violated them and, when he made a move, did not notice that he had to wait. This is an extremely rare case, the first I can recall,” said Smagin.

A video of the rarest incident has gone viral over various social media platforms. It is found in the video that the kid had his fingers trapped by the robot for a few seconds before a woman rushed to help him. Three men then intervened and managed to free the boy’s finger from the robot’s hold.

As per reports, the boy’s name is Christopher and he is among the 30 most promising under-nine chess players in Moscow.
