A young boy tripped and fell onto an expensive painting in a museum exhibition. The painting is 350 years old, and now has a hole in it!
The museum isn´t angry with him though - they understand that it was an accident, and he didn´t mean to damage the painting. They plan to restore the painting as much as they can.
