A teenager became stuck in a lift after he peed all over the control buttons.

The boy from Chongqing in south-west China was caught on CCTV entering the lift alone before unzipping his trousers and dousing the controls with urine.

But things went wrong as he tried to leave. The doors of the lift opened slightly and then shut and closed, trapping him inside.

The boy can be seen panicking, pushing the buttons repeatedly but the doors remain stuck and the lift goes dark.

The Strait Times reports he had to be rescued by building maintenance staff.

Remember kids, urine and electrical equipment don’t mix.
