Late for School? Get to Dad's Chopper!

Late for school? Don't ask mom for a ride in her minivan ... ask dad to drop you off with his helicopter! (See, choppers aren't only good for running away from alien monster ... )

Passersby spotted a chopper land in front of a school in the elite Lipky district of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Moments later, a schoolboy jumped out and ran inside. The boy is reportedly the son of former Deputy Minister of Sports Andrey Palchevskii.

The incident sparked a debate on social media: is it an extravagant gesture of the elite, or is it just a boy desperate not to be late for school?

This puts a whole new spin on "Helicopter Parenting." View the story and video clip on Metro.
