A video of a boy in China urinating in a lift, causing it to break down, has gone viral and been used as a warning to parents to keep control of their children.
The Ministry of Public Security has released the video showing the youngster urinating over the buttons of an elevator in a building in Chongqing, south west China.
The prank backfired, trapping the boy inside before he was later rescued.
The video was posted on the ministry’s social order offences account on Weibo, China’s popular Twitter-like service, under the headline “Stop being naughty!”
The footage, which has been viewed more than 12m times, shows the lift’s control panel fusing, its lights turning on and off and its doors opening and closing, leaving the unidentified boy visibly distressed. MORE HERE/Video
