Strange News: Boy Spends Parents' Life Savings on Candy

When a 9-year-old Ukrainian boy came across the equivalent of nearly 4 thousand bucks in his family's couch, he did what most kids might: he didn't think where it came from, he just blew it on candy. 

According to UPI, the boy tapped a mentally ill adult acquaintance to help him convert more than three thousand U.S. dollars and 600 Euros to Ukrainian hryvnas, then the pair split their ill-gotten goodies. The kid also made it rain with sweet-toothed friends as well.

The child's father reportedly discovered his makeshift bank had been raided, and his son eventually came clean.
