China's Ministry of Public Security released footage of a boy peeing in an elevator in an effort to warn about unsupervised kids. But it's the instant karma the kid received that's overtaken the conversation, per the BBC. The Friday footage from Chongqing shows a boy peeing on the buttons of an elevator, causing a short circuit that kills the lights and jams the doors, leaving the boy trapped. Local reports say the boy was later rescued. If he hasn't learned his lesson, Mashable has advice for his future pranks: "Maybe don't sabotage the very thing keeping you safe."
