Boy amputates own finger to protest accusation of smartphone addiction

An 11-year-old boy from Suzhou, China is said to have sliced off his own index finger to settle an argument with his father who believed that he had a smartphone addiction.
When his father suggested that he put down his phone and help his brother with his homework, the boy picked up a knife and stabbed himself effectively enough to sever one of his swiping digits. Although the finger was reattached, it is not yet known whether the digit in question will live to swipe another day.
