A Chinese woman saved her suicidal husband from plunging from the top floor of a tall building to his death by grabbing his leg at the last second and holding him there for 20 minutes before help arrived.
According to Chinese news outlet Sohu, the 45-year old man had recently moved to the northeastern city of Changchun with his wife and child, where he unfortunately began to experience work-related stress and ‘delusions’. The symptoms eventually escalated and climaxed with the man attempting a suicidal leap from the window of the topmost floor of the tall building.
Fortunately, his wife happened to be around at that time and her sharp instincts prompted her to grab him by his leg and shorts, suspending him that way for over 20 minutes before police arrived.
He was eventually pulled back inside just as the woman’s strength began to wane.
This story is currently making waves in China, with one commenting, ‘It is very important to find a wife with good arm strength.’
