Woman Climbed the Great Wall of China to Avoid £2.50 Admission Fee

How far would you go to save a few bucks? Jump the turnstile? Phsaw, slackers! That ain't nothing compared to what this Chinese woman did to avoid a £2.50 admission fee: she climbed the Great Wall of China!

Thrifty [Ma] Jei - who had no rope or safety equipment - told fellow visitors she'd grown up in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, climbing the walls of Zhonghau Castle since childhood and had never once paid to get in.

But unfortunately her stunt encouraged other visitors to follow her example - with two falling and breaking their legs and three others having to be rescued by police.

'She ran up the wall like a goat and made it look easy. But when people tried it for themselves they saw it wasn't quite as simple as they thought,' explained one tourist.
