A man in Ningbo was sued for 670,000 yuan ($106,000) after a thief escaping from his apartment fell six stories to death, which the parents blamed on the owner's yell to catch the thief.

The 28-year-old thief, surnamed Chen, climbed to an outlying canopy above the room through a window after he was seen by Mr. Li, who woke up from his sleep in an evening on September, 2010.

Chen's parents first claimed that Mr. Li was obliged to protect the life of their son since he entered Li's house, then changed their statement that the death was caused by Li's yelling to catch him.

The owner said he didn't realize he was robbed until Chen left the room, and his yelling was purely out of instinct.

A local court dismissed the parents' claim as an adult should take the responsibility for climbing a high-rise building in the midnight.

.....what parents do not grieve the loss of their son and in China more than likely, their only son, but instead choose to lay blame for his death on an innocent man...you should both hang your heads in shame and ask for forgiveness for your sons reprehensible behaviour not cash in on it....well done to the court for dismissing this 2nd criminal act........
