Attempted burglary ends with accidental brick to the face


You get a break-in attempt gone hilariously wrong.

One throws the brick at the business and then the other misses the business and instead hits his partner.

He appears to be instantly knocked unconscious, falling to the ground face-first.

This is surely an early nominee for "dumbest burglars of the year".

"Shanghai police released this footage of what might be the two people in the world least qualified to pull off a life of #crime", a user tweeted on Twitter.

The attempted robbery took place in Shanghai, China.

One would-be burglar was successful but as he moved away, he was knocked out cold by his partner in "crime".

The video footage was posted to social media website Weibo by the Shanghai Police Department, and has since been viewed more than 15 million times on the site alone.

A spokesman for the Shanghai Public Security Bureau said: 'If all burglars were like this, we wouldn't need to work overtime'.
