A boy from China's Chongqing City got trapped in a lift last Friday (Feb 23) after peeing on the lift's control panel.

Closed-circuit television footage of the incident has been circulating on Chinese social media platforms.

In the video, the boy enters the lift alone.

He is then seen urinating onto the lift's buttons before zipping up his pants and preparing to exit.

However, when the lift reaches the floor he wants to get off at, the lift malfunctions when the doors open slightly before shutting immediately.

He then panics and starts jumping in the lift and pressing several buttons before everything goes dark.

According to media reports, the boy was later rescued by building maintenance staff and was not injured.
