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?
