A boy may have reached a new repugnant low by urinating in elevator and causing the lift’s control panel to short circuit, spewing a shower of sparks that frightened a building resident.  

A video posted by the Red Star News on Wednesday shows a boy on an apartment elevator in South China’s Guangdong Province turning to face a corner of the elevator and peeing on the call buttons and the locked door of the lift’s control box.  

The elevator’s surveillance video next shows a woman stepping into the empty elevator just as sparks fly from a low light by the door and the control panel compartment. In a panic, she jumps off the lift located in an apartment complex in the city of Meizhou.

The boy’s disgusting pee prank will cost the building’s maintenance department 10,000 yuan ($1,456) to repair the elevator.

No one was hurt in the incident and media reports didn’t indicate if the boy has been identified or punished.
