If you ever turned up to school red faced and gasping after having to run the last mile up the hill, look away now.
Because for some people, when they sleep in, they get taken to school in a helicopter.
That’s apparently what happened to this kid in Ukraine, who was filmed running out of a car park and into lessons with his shirt untucked.
The Robinson R22 Beta landed outside the school in the elite Lipky district of Kiev, the capital.
Passersby filming it land (because you don’t usually see a chopper land at the school gates) were amazed to see the boy leap out.
Frankly, it beats getting a backy on your big brother’s bike, or a lift with Dave’s mum.
The boy is reportedly the son of Andrey Palchevskii, a former Deputy Minister of Sports for Ukraine.
Mr Palchevskii has not so far commented on the incident but it has sparked debate on social media.
Some criticised the father for spoiling his son by taking him to school by helicopter.
‘Anna Melenchuk’ said: ‘All we can hope is that such people get a proper judgement one day. Only this way will humanity have a shot of getting stabilised again.’
But ‘Artyon Ulibin’ argued: ‘Don’t be jealous. Why would you bother with that? It is great when people are able to afford such things.’
And some people suggested the footage of the helicopter could be a movie stunt.
Lypky is a historic neighbourhood of the Ukrainian capital Kiev where most government buildings and top hotels are based.
