Hide and seek is a helluva game. Unless you’re playing by yourself, that is…

One child in Jiangsu province learned that the hard way, after locking himself in a neighborhood pick-up locker (you know, the ones used for all your Taobao orders) on August 31.

Surveillance footage captured in a neighborhood in Changzhou shows the 11-year-old boy crawl into an open pick-up locker compartment, accidentally locking himself inside the tiny space in the process.

Fortunately, he had a phone in his pocket, which he used to call the fire department as well as the property management office for help. Local reports do not mention how long the boy was stuck in the ‘slammer.’ 

“The child was afraid, fortunately he took his mobile phone with him and was able to call for help, otherwise the outcome would have been unimaginable,” wrote one Weibo user. Another person posted, “He’s really fortunate that he had a phone, otherwise he really would have died in there.”

Other netizens were dishing out reminders for all online shoppers when snagging their goods, with one user writing, “After you grab your package be sure to close the compartment, so this type of thing doesn’t happen again.”
