A 6-year-old boy in Xinyu, Jiangxi Province, was so fascinated with Spiderman after watching the superhero movie that he started climbing down his residential building, jumping from one balcony to another, almost compulsively.
Xiao Ming's terrified parents last week sought help from the police, who dropped an egg from the boy's balcony to show him what would happen if he fell down. The egg obviously shattered to pieces. Seeing that, Xiao promised never to repeat his death-defying acts again.
