A 12-year-old boy visiting a Taipei art museum accidentally tripped in front of a $1.5 million painting and punched a hole in it when he fell. Luckily for the boy, the museum was actually super understanding, saying insurance would cover the repairs. “This is just a simple accident,” officials said in a statement. “Please don’t blame a 12-year-old child.” They even planned to invite the boy to volunteer with them for a day.
