A 10-year-old boy in Guizhou, China scored a victory for animation lovers everywhere when he sawed through a construction worker’s safety harness rope, leaving the worker dangling 11 stories above ground. The boy had a perfectly reasonable defense: the worker’s drilling was interrupting his afternoon cartoons.
According to the cartoon-obstructionist construction worker Liu Mai, “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.”
