Video: Bolivia Father Locks Son in Wooden Box For Two Months
A 21-year old Bolivian man was forced to live in a homemade wooden box for two months in Eastern Bolivia as a punishment for stealing three chickens. Police rescued the boy who was forced to live in the 10 feet by 6.5 feet box.
“I went out and when I came back, they were angry with me here and home,” Johan Knelsen told police from inside the wooden cage, which also contained pillows and bottles he had used as a toilet. “And some people tied me up and put me in here eight weeks ago.”
The family reportedly belong to the Christian Mennonite denomination, which follows a very strict interpretation of the Bible and shuns the use of technology.
