A boy who, for some weird reason, decided to urinate on the control buttons of an elevator, ended up trapped inside as the lift stopped functioning.

The incident, caught on video, happened in Chongqing, southwest China, last Friday.

CCTV footage shows the unidentified boy, who appears to be a teenager, aiming his urine at the buttons, then zipping up his jeans and preparing to exit the lift.

Except the lift doesn't open and the boy begins to panic.

He can then be seen pressing multiple buttons in a hurry. The buttons are covered in his urine and they flicker with the damage, sending the boy into a frenzy.

He was later rescued by building maintenance staff.

He reportedly tried to deny he'd done anything to cause the lift to malfunction, but was later confronted with the footage.

His parents will now have to pay for the damage.
