A spa customer in central China ?has complained to police that her massage session was livestreamed to a half-naked man by mobile phone.

The woman, surnamed Li, was naked from the waist up during a massage at the Xiyue Life Spa in Wuhan, Hubei province, on Monday when she found a mobile phone facing her on a table, the Chutian Metropolis News reported.

She said the phone was in video chat mode and a man, who was naked from the waist up, was on the other end. Li grabbed the phone and then called the police.

“Police collected evidence and found the video chat was started when I was having the spa. Officers were shocked that the video chat lasted 33:33 minutes. My spa had been livestreamed,” she wrote on customer review Internet site

Li said she was offered 20,000 yuan (RM12,180) to keep quiet about the situation, as the masseuse was less than 16 years old and could not be held legally responsible for the intrusion. Angered by the way the spa handled the incident, Li decided to publish her account online.

An executive of the spa, surnamed Chen, told the newspaper the masseuse was an intern and the whole situation was accidental.

She said the intern broke a rule by taking a phone into the spa room and by chatting on video with a friend. She put down the phone for Li’s massage and forgot about it, until the client heard a noise from the phone.

Chen said the spa and Li had been unable to reach an agreement because she had demanding more compensation than the spa was offering. – South China Morning Post
