A power grid manager accidentally broadcast himself romping with a junior colleague when he forgot to hang up his video conference call.
Based on WeChat conversation screencaps, the manager of China's Southern Power Grid filmed himself having sex with his colleague in a conference room minutes after a call earlier that morning which was attended by employees from five different provinces.
After the meeting was adjourned for a break, the manager allegedly decided to make use of the now empty conference room at the company’s Guangzhou headquarters.
The footage first leaked on Saturday but it has now been scrubbed from social media by Chinese censors.
Two employees have since been arrested and face defamation charges as well as further punishment for spreading "false rumours" after they allegedly shared the footage.Read More

The phrases "Southern Power Grid" and "Use Love to Make Power" have become two of the most blocked terms on social media site Weibo, according to Free Weibo.
The phrases have even overtaken "constitutional change" and "Xi Jinping".
The manager has been identified on some social media channels but claims he is being deliberately framed and vowed to file libel lawsuits.
Two Chinese state-owned electricity provider employees were arrested yesterday.
The suspects, a man surnamed Tang and a woman surnamed Wang, both 30, face defamation charges as well as further punishment for spreading "false rumours" after they allegedly shared the footage.
China Southern Power Grid, which is one of two state-owned power providers, is pressing charges against Tang and Wang, who have reportedly since admitted spreading the rumours online.
Wang told police that she "further dramatised" rumours and shared them to major web forums online.
The case remains under investigation.
