Robot breaks boy’s finger during chess match in Moscow

A chess robot broke a 7 year old boy’s finger during an international chess forum Moscow Chess Open which took place in Moscow from 13 to 21 July.

Sergey Lazarev, president of the Moscow Chess Federation, told Russian state media outlet TASS that the boy did not give the robot enough time to answer, and the robot grabbed him.

Tournament officials and others rushed over to help the child break free from the robot.

Lazarev added that they did not own the robot but simply rented it.

Despite the incident, the boy continued to play in a cast and finished the tournament.
