A 4-year-old boy ruined his father’s passport during a recent family vacation in South Korea, and now the man, known only as Chen, is unable to return to China.

The little boy drew animals and people on his dad’s Chinese passport in black ink.

Officials say the damage is so bad that the documentation is now "unrecognizable" and that Chen will not be able to travel home with the rest of his family.

An image of the passport was posted to China’s social networking site Sina Weibo along with a plea for help.
