Daring Eighth-floor Rescue

34-year-old Hu Binjun of Chengdu, Sichuan province, China was reportedly been doing drugs when he threatened to commit suicide. He also dangled his three-year-old daughter out the window of their eighth-story apartment by her legs! Police and emergency personnel spent three hours dealing with Hu.
Several attempts to coax Mr Hu into putting the girl down failed, until Chen Long, a 22-year-old fireman dressed in army uniform, dropped down from a window on the floor above and grabbed the child away from her parent.

As Mr Chen intervened, Mr Hu tried again to snatch the girl back, eventually falling back into his apartment.

He was arrested by the police after the incident on Tuesday, but subsequently attacked by a crowd of onlookers for threatening the life of the girl.

The daughter was found to have no serious injuries. Link -via Arbroath

That rescuer has to be one of the bravest people I've seen. Imagine standing on a ledge on the 8th floor, secured only by a cord? It's farther down than it looks in the pic.

Good thing they cleared that up that he was taking drugs - otherwise I might have mistaking thought that just regular Chinese people could be crazy and dangerous.
