Soldiers operating the huge scroll that formed the centrepiece of last week's Olympic opening ceremony had to stay hidden under the structure for up to seven hours, wearing nappies because they were not allowed toilet breaks, state media reported on Friday.
Nearly 900 soldiers were hidden underneath the scroll, many of them moving giant printing blocks with Chinese characters, the Beijing News reported.
"The performers for Chinese character parts went into the models underground at 2 pm, and after getting in there they could not come out," the newspaper quoted choreographer Han Lixun as saying.
"The underground area was so hot, there were 897 people there, and they had to wait until they finished their performance," Han said.
"So altogether they had to stay there for six to seven hours, and they could not even go to the toilet, so they all wore nappies," Han said.

So where is the workers union?
If the communists are so pro-union and the US is so worker-hostile, why do those abuses go on there and not here?
So did the Chinese girls,excuse me,women’s gymnastic team!
They were dedicated to the movement.

Like the man said, “Same s***, different day.”
Aren’t they worried OSHA will shut them down?
It's not exploitation unless somebody is getting rich...

`Yellow River’ by I.P. Freely
So long, boy you can take my place
I’ve got my papers, I’ve got my pay
So pack my bags and I’ll be on my way
To Yellow River
Put my gun down, the war is won
Fill my glass high, the time has come
I’m going back to the place that I love
Yellow River is in my mind and in my eyes
Yellow River is in my blood, it’s the place I love
Depends... They are not just for watching Sunday football anymore.
