Parents who allow their kids to walk on their own in public places but are afraid of them running off will most probably purchase a contraption called a “kid leash”. It allows parents to stay ‘connected’ with their child by attaching a leash to their child’s wrist or backpack.
Or like this.
While there is seemingly an ‘advantage’ for parents who want to keep their hands free, there is also a downside of using a kid leash.
In a horrifying incident that happened in Huangshi, China on 28 May, a little girl on a kid leash was hauled up to the ceiling when she failed to follow her mother out the elevator in time.
According to Oriental Daily, the mother had taken three of her kids out on 28 May. As she walked out of the elevator, her two-year-old daughter did not follow her out and the door closed before she could get to her daughter.
CCTV footage shows the little girl standing in an elevator while the door closed, and immediately after that, she was hoisted up by the leash and was left hanging by her wrist for almost two whole minutes before she dropped back down.
Fortunately, the girl was successfully rescued after the family asked the management for help.
Omg, thankfully nothing bad happened to the little girl! Parents who use kid leashes, please be extra careful. Just because your kid is attached to you does not mean that they are safe.
