Alternative Approaches To Baby Dangling

An angry crowd in southwest China beat a suicidal man who threatened to jump off a ledge with his two-year-old daughter, state media reported.

More than 100 people attacked the man, 34-year-old Hu Binjun, after he had dangled his daughter from an eighth-floor window in the city of Chengdu, in Sichuan province, according to the China Daily.

"He deserved the beating because he was so inhumane to his own child," said a woman at the scene, according to the report.

Those crazy Chinese, don't they realise that dangling your baby out of a window is a sign of an eccentric genius?

No, it's a sign of being a total twat, actually.

But it is funny how everybody immediately thought of Wacko when they saw that picture.

I thought 'Look at that Chinese fireman! What's he doing crouched on a ledge, no helmet or protective gear! Did he do a risk assessment first?'...

Twat, genius, lets not get bogged down in semantics.

Let us all hope that the fireman was disciplined for his failure to adhere to health and safety regulations.

Life in China must be a hoot these days.

Fireman has a rope and harness.

Good on him and the crowd.
