On Wednesday, a 4-year-old boy in Fujian’s Putian city managed to get his head stuck in a balcony railing while he was playing.
His sobs drew the attention of this father who called in firefighters to help rescue his stuck son. Over the next 30 minutes, the firefighters tried out a variety of different methods to free the kid. In the meantime, the child’s father occupied himself by documenting this moment with his phone’s camera.
On Weibo, some netizens wondered if this man, who showed such indifference to the child’s plight, could really be the boy’s father, accusing him of caring more about his WeChat Moments than his own son. Though perhaps the dad was simply preparing for his fatherly duty of regularly embarrassing his son when he gets older.
