In the wee hours of the morning on Monday, a daring thief attempted to rob a store in Fujian’s Putian city. However, his grand plans were foiled by one quick-thinking door.
Surveillance footage from around 4 a.m. shows the shop’s garage door starting to close as the thief rushes to get back inside.
But, before he can think better of it, the door comes down on his leg, trapping him.
While the thief tries to struggle free for a couple of minutes, eventually he lies back and resigns himself to his fate, waiting for the day to break so that the police will come and rescue him.
“I swear it’s not what it looks like!”
