A bride in China was rescued to safety after threatening to jump out of a window seven stories up. It was reported the reason was because her fiance dumped her mere days before their wedding. Miss Li, a college student, sat crying and swinging around on the ledge of the window dressed in her wedding gown. An hour passed and then policemen arrived to the scene. As she threatened to jump, Li said she could not live with the fact that she was jilted by her fiance and he left to and marry another woman a couple of days before their wedding.
Li lived on the fourth floor of the building. She went to another apartment on the seventh floor with the aim to jump. Her mother and other relatives were called by police after Li dropped her bag from the building containing her cell phone. Police and others went into the apartment to stop her. Community officer Guo Zhongfan proceeded to grab and hold Li by her neck and arms to pull her up after she had pushed herself off the ledge. In the apartment below, a man reached out of the window and pushed Li’s feet up. Guo then pulled her up to safety.
Media and about a hundred people witnessed Guo rescue the woman and applauded him. He humbly stated, “I am the director of the Xinfa Community Administration Office. My surname is Guo. I did what anyone would have done.” The bride was sent to the hospital in an ambulance after the ordeal.
