Too Noisy to Watch TV: Kid Severs Worker’s Safety Rope in China

A construction worker in Guizhou Province is lucky to be alive after a boy decided to cut his safety rope because “the drilling sound was too noisy to watch my cartoon.”

The unfortunate man, surnamed Liu, was using a drilling rig off the 8th floor at a site in Guiyang when he suddenly felt his safety rope shaking. He looked down, and saw the 10-year-old boy cutting it with a knife.

Liu shouted out to him to stop, but the boy continued, so he called over to his colleagues for help.

He hung in mid-air for over 40 minutes, until local firemen were able to rescue him, according to news.gzdsw.com.
