Chinese kid climbs out of 11-storey window to escape being punished by mum

Ever been scolded for not doing your homework? Were you made to stand in a corner as punishment?

Or banned from going to the playground? 

A boy was so afraid of being punished by his mother for not finishing his homework on time that he climbed out the window of his 11-storey apartment.

The incident took place on Monday in China's Sichuan province.

The 12-year-old sat on the ledge as family members and the police tried to persuade him to come back inside.

After a two-hour standoff, the boy finally agreed to return to the apartment.
