A man burst onto a stage and poured water over the head of Baidu CEO Robin Li at a company-sponsored event on Artificial Intelligence on Wednesday.
Baidu, a popular search engine in China, has faced criticism in recent years following a medical advertising scandal.
Li was telling the crowd about Baidu's autonomous car development when the man sauntered upon stage and dumped a water bottle on his head. Li was stunned and remained unmoved for a second to register what was happening.
But Li calmly resumed his presentation in the drenched white shirt even as security intervened to cart off the man.
Baidu issued a statement after the incident but did not give any details about the individual or what happened to him afterwards.
