A university student in Hangzhou was recently caught on camera escaping his locked-down campus by swimming his way to freedom and food.
After reopening following the coronavirus outbreak, Hangzhou Normal University has implemented a system where students are mostly confined to campus and have to submit a request to be allowed out.
However, not wanting to do the paperwork, one student found another way out.
On surveillance camera footage, he is seen chucking a bag most of the way across a murky creek before taking the plunge himself.
Reportedly, he made this escape so he could eat some hotpot.
The university posted the footage onto Weibo, noting that it had reprimanded the student upon his return to campus.
