For a good minute, this video is comic. The dramatic music. The onlookers (one of them scratches his head). But then, at the 1:07 mark, a voice-over (huh?) tells us the rescuer is in position. Rescuer? A rappelling firefighter swings swiftly from one face of the building to the other, and grabs the potential suicide jumper. He gets some help from the people from the windows, who grab the jumper’s arms and legs. And just like that, another life saved. All in a day’s work.
This happened in Ningbo. I can’t find a date, but the video first appeared on Youku (after the jump for those in China) two days ago.
