A suicidal woman sat by the window was saved by firefighters in an unusual way.
Here you can see how Chinese firefighters deal with those who are trying to commit suicide.
The incident happened in Wenzhou city, Anhui province. It was reported that the firefighters and police officers tried to talk her out of jumping for 30 minutes but failed.
A fireman used a long rod to push the woman to get her to safety. Meanwhile, another rescuer used a high-pressure water cannon to blast her back inside her home. She was then taken to hospital for a checkup.
Why the woman wanted to jump off the balcony (it was the fourth floor) has not been reported.
According to WHO data for 2008, suicide cases in China accounted for 26 percent of all suicide cases in the world, especially in rural areas, and women committed them more often than men (according to various sources, 25-40 percent more often.)
