This is the dramatic moment that family, friends and rescue workers desperately try to stop a woman from leaping to her death. They are forced to cling to her legs as she threatens to throw herself off the building. But what they did not know was that she had smothered her four-year-old nephew and thrown him from the same roof in Southern China.
The woman had been embroiled in a bitter row with her sister-in-law, the young boy’s mother, and killed the boy as a revenge. The horrific truth behind her suicide attempt was unveiled when she had been brought off the ledge.
‘She admits she'd thrown the boy off the same roof.’, a police spokesman told local media. ‘She will still die now, but by a firing squad for murder.'
The woman was spotted on the roof.
Local suicide expert was dispatched.
The woman's daughter was also brought up on the roof to attempt to talk her down - not knowing that her mother had killed her cousin.
Yet the woman tried to throw herself from the building but the people managed to hold her legs.
People holding her legs in a tight grip refused to let go.
Unaware of her hideous crime, people drag her back from the ledge.
Only to find the truth behind her suicide attempt shortly after her rescue.
