Saturday cartoons are extremely important to one particular 10-year-old Chinese boy. So much so that he would almost kill to watch them.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, when one unruly child would not take a nap the daycare solved the problem with duct tape. But when a grandma duct-taped a pacifier to a baby’s mouth for a photo shoot almost everyone on social media freaked out and had the police investigate.
A construction worker named Liu Mai installing a light on the outside of a high-rise apartment building was busy at work when suddenly a boy named Tan Chu appeared at a window on the eighth floor and began sawing through the safety rope that kept tethered to the wall.
“I was using an electric drill to fit security lights to the outside of the building when I felt my safety rope shaking. I looked up to see what was wrong. Then I saw the boy cutting the rope with a knife. I shouted at him to stop but he didn’t listen and soon after, the rope was broken. I was petrified.”
It turns out the drill Mai was using on the building was so loud that it was drowning out the sound of the Saturday morning cartoons. That’s when Chu felt compelled to chew up the worker’s rope.
“I shouted at him to stop, but he didn’t listen and soon after, the rope was broken,” the worker said. The man was left dangling from the end of the rope on the side of the building but he could not pull himself back up. “That’s when I called to my workmate for help,” said Mai, but help would not come for another 40 minutes when several firemen rescued the poor man from his precarious predicament.
So what happened to the naughty little boy? The father, Tang Peng, said his son had apologized and the family brought the worker a new rope.
“We also gave him a good talking too and explained what he did was very dangerous,” said Peng. “He has promised he will not do something similar again.”
Needless to say, the 10-year-old boy may have his Saturday morning cartoons restricted and the father is planning on taking his son to anger management therapy.
