Children on leashes in brick factory
HAINING, Zhejiang - Children of kiln workers at a brick/tile factory in the town of Dingqiao in Haining, some 125 km west of Shanghai, have been leashed to the workshop's windows with rope by their parents.
It is believed that the parents of these children do not have time to look after them while they are away at work.
They have resorted to these measures because they are afraid that their children will get into an accident if left unsupervised.
It is also understood that these children are leashed for nearly 10 hours every day.
