arlier this month, two children were brutally beaten up for around two hours after an amusement park owner in Haidong, Qinghai province busted them sneaking into his park.
The pair of 12-year-old boys, surnamed Lu and Zheng, said that they had climbed over the amusement fence park, looking to have some fun for free. But, after half an hour of jumping on the bouncy castle and playing on the slides, they were caught by the park owner as they were getting ready to leave.
According to Lu, the owner dashed towards them and yanked them off their bike. He then proceeded to kick them repeatedly and slap them in the face before dragging them back to a house inside the park.
Once there, Lu said that the man locked them inside a room and told his wife to fetch him a meter-long stick. The wife handed her husband the stick, who then used it to beat the two children, smacking them on their butts, thighs, and calves. The kids said that they didn’t dare cry, because they were scared that the tears would only make him hit them harder.
This torture went on for more than two hours with Lu finally managing to escape the house when the man wasn’t looking. Zheng was then set free as well.
When asked why they had decided to sneak into the park, Lu confessed that they simply didn’t want to buy a ticket. Their families admitted that their children were partly at fault, but insisted that the punishment was far too extreme. Police are looking into the matter.
