Paris Heatwave: Residents of poor suburban districts are opening fire hydrants for relief

This is a new phenomenon in France happening across the country in poor immigrant areas. It seems the residents are copying this from what they see happens in American ghettos during hot weather. Officials are saying water wastage levels are in the millions of liters per hour but the youths say they will continue tampering with the fire hydrants (bouches d'incendie) for relief.
