A Chinese police officer saved a suicidal man who jumped off a four-storey building by using his own body to cushion his fall.
The troubled man believed to have taken hallucinogenic drugs was spotted threatening to jump from the top of the scaffolding set up around the building. Police officers immediately arrived at the scene and attempted to convince the man to come down. They also set up a safety cushion on the pavement below in case the man decides the jump.
But before the safety cushion had been put into place, the troubled man leapt from the apartment block.
Luckily, a heroic police officer named Liang Xiao rushed to catch the man and used his body to cushion the man’s fall.
Both men were brought to a hospital in Guangxi in southern China. Fortunately, the two men survived the incident.
Although the condition of the troubled man is undetermined, Liang is currently recovering after sustaining a broken left foot, multiple bruises, and facial swelling.
