BEIJING: Infidelity or adultery can have a lot of consequences. So, before you make any bold and hasty decisions by keeping your significant other in the dark, you might want to read this story.

A man in China was tied to a cage and thrown into the river by his wife after he was caught cheating with his mistress, according to reports.

A small clip shared on social media and circulate widely shows the husband wailing in pain as several people strap him in ropes before he was put in a bamboo. He was apparently found a bed with another woman.

Reports said the method of punishment seen in the video is loosely translated as 'dip in a pig cage', which was apparently practiced by the Chinese people in ancient times.

It was practiced during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644 AD) and Qing dynasty (1644 - 1912 AD) as a form of punishment for infidelity.

According to an official police statement, the shocking incident took place in southern China's Maoming city in the early hours of Friday. The man seen in the footage is now in stable condition, said the police.

The incident came to light after the footage was widely circulated on Chinese social media. The video shows, the man in a state of shock after a group of men barged into his room and caught him in bed with another woman. His alleged mistress is seen standing by the door.

Reports said the man was thrown into a river after he was tied to a bamboo cage.

Although he didn't suffer any serious injuries, he was taken to a hospital for check-up. Following the incident, the police started an investigation and arrested four suspects.

While many on social media said 'Pig cage' was an ancient punishment method for adultery, some said it was originally used for transporting pigs. However, this kind of punishment is not approved under current Chinese laws.
