Chinese boy confesses to urinating on elevator, promises to clean for 1 month
A Chinese boy owned up to his mischief, admitting that he had urinated on the elevator repeatedly. He also promised to clean the elevator for a month.
The unidentified boy had been caught on the elevator security camera several times but the frustrated property owner could not identify him. Building management then started to circulate a footage of the boy doing the deed among residents of the high-rise building in Xianyang city, Shaanxi province. It later spread on Chinese social media, according to a report by China Business News via South China Morning Post.
Management later identified the boy when his mother, feeling sorry, admitted to the boy’s misbehavior on the residential building’s WeChat group. “After finding out about this situation, we scolded and educated him last night. He knows what he has done wrong and hopes you will all forgive him. He also wants to clean the lift as compensation,” wrote the mother.
The boy also hand-wrote an apology letter to their neighbors to whom he promised to clean the elevator for a month.
Cleaners previously noticed puddles of urine would appear on the elevator and leave a foul odor for two weeks, according to the report.
A similar incident occurred sometime in February when another Chinese boy urinated on the elevator buttons. However, that boy immediately received punishment when his urine short-circuited the elevator and trapped him inside. Alfred Bayle /ra
