Villager Jitendar Kumar said: “The langur climbed the transmission tower on Sunday. Later, we found that its neck’s rope was stuck in the tower and it couldn’t escape. “ The villagers informed the local police on August 7, who requested the help of an animal rescue organisation, Wildlife SOS.

Indonesian toddler smokes 40 cigarettes a day3m54s

Indonesian toddler smokes 40 cigarettes a day

This chain-smoking toddler has developed an insatiable habit - and puffs through 40 cigarettes a day. Two-year-old Rapi Ananda Pamungkas started by picking up used butts outside his mum's market stall in Sukabumi, Indonesia. But within days he was hooked - and would constantly pester passing shoppers to give him cigarettes. The adults initially found the youngster's demands endearing and plied him with cigarettes while laughing as he lit up. But Rapi - nicknamed Rap - soon started becoming aggressive and throwing tantrums when he couldn't get his beloved ''meroko'', the local term for cigarettes. Rapi's mother, Maryati, 35, admitted on Monday (13/08) that she buys two packs of cigarettes a day for the boy to stop him from going ''beserk''. She said: ''My child is used to smoking while drinking coffee and eating cake. ''He has been smoking every day for around two months. If I don't give him a cigarette, my child goes berserk.'' Maryati said that Rapi started around two months ago by collecting cigarette butts scattered on the road which older lads lit for him. After that, he demanded cigarettes from passing adults and his parents who run a food stall, which also sells cigarettes. The mother said that it had been difficult to ban her child from smoking because he will ''cry all day'' if he can't smoke. Maryati added: ''If Rapi doesn't get cigarettes he cannot sleep. He will start rampaging and crying. It's expensive, because we have to buy them for him. He likes to do it all day. He can smoke about 40 every day.'' Rapi's father, Misbahudin, 40, said he also smokes but doesn't know why his child started the habit. He added: ''I cannot say no to him when he asks for a cigarette. I don’t even smoke that often. I only smoke at work. When my son smokes he likes to have a cup of mochaccino.'' The parents said they will take the toddler to see a doctor to try and kick his smoking habit. Indonesia has one of the highest numbers of smokers per population in the world and a growing problem of child smokers. Around nine percent of under 18s smoke regularly. In 2010, the two-year-old boy Aldi Rizal achieved notoriety after it emerged he also would smoke two packets a day, with footage showing him happily smoking cigarettes.
