Southern China -- A 10 year old boy had quite enough with construction noise during his cartoons.  He cut the safety rope, leaving the construction worker dangling 8 stories up.

The man clung to his rope and called for his co-workers to call the fire brigade.

The construction worker, Mr. Liu, described the incident, "When I was using the electric drill, I felt my lower rope shaking.  Then I saw the boy cutting the rope with a knife.  I shouted for him to stop but he didn't listen and soon after, the rope was broken.  That's when I called to my workmate for help."

The boy came clean to the police and his father was called home from work.  The father apologized and paid for a new safety rope.
