Boy Found Living In IKEA After Running Away From Home



Ever think about how easy it would be to just live inside of an IKEA? A Chinese boy found out first hand.

According to Shanghai Daily, 12-year-old Peng Yijian ran away from home on November 3rd after getting in trouble for not doing his math homework. He was found six days later inside a nearby IKEA. The speculation is that he slept on showroom mattresses at night, and survived on free food samples handed out in supermarkets during the day.

The middle school student was found hungry, in a very weak condition, and was rushed to a hospital where he was put on an intravenous drip. His mother told reporters her son had run away from home before, but never for such a long duration of time.

If the boy really did manage to survive all that time in an IKEA, it wouldn't be too much of a surprise. Comedian and filmmaker Mark Malkoff partnered with the Sweden-based furniture store and also lived inside an IKEA for six days. He documented his experience his blog MarkLivesInIKEA.com.
