CCTV footage is circulating the internet of a 7-year-old Chinese girl dropping a 4-year-old boy down a well in Yunnan’s Songming County in China.
In the footage, the girl, identified by her surname Wang, lifts the boy, who is smaller than her, off the ground, carries him over the well, and drops him. The boy, identified as Yang, cries out in despair as he clings to the edge of the well. However, Wang pushes his hands off the edge of the well and watches as he plunges inside.
The report states that the well was around 5 meters deep, with about 2 meters of water. According to the Songming County police, the boy hit the water after falling a couple of meters. The boy, who was rescued by residents hearing his cries, caught a cold but had no major injuries.
The report also outlined that he and the girl were neighbours who frequently played together before the incident occurred on March 4 at 4:00 p.m. When the girl was asked why she did it, she said that she was imitating a TV show.
