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. But the Harbin Public Transportation Company said the special safety hammers were too expensive and instead fitted their buses with regular building bricks painted bright orange and tied with a piece of string to meet the new rules.
