A weird birthday gift - an imitation of a human arm - from a classmate made the boy's whole family cower in fear, reports Shenyang Evening News.

The 14-year-old student of Shenyang, capital of Liaoning Province, received several odd gifts from his classmates last week but the whole family was frightened - and some screamed - by the "moving arm" when they unwrapped the package.

After realizing what it was, the father destroyed it, saying it would frighten cleaners if he dumped it whole into the garbage bin.
