In case of emergency break window with brick

Picture 8
Cheapskate Chinese bus company bosses are fitting their vehicles with bricks on a string instead of the usual hammers to break the glass in an emergency.

Health and Safety executives in Heilongjiang Province, north-east China, ruled that passengers needed to be able to smash the windows to get out in an emergency.
