Firemen in southern China had to rescue a man who wanted to commit suicide. The whole incident was film on local TV.

They say the man have taking drugs. He wanted to kill himself when his family told him to go into a rehabilitation centre. When the firemen arrived, he was sitting in a high place, ready to jump.

The firemen were preparing their security equipment when he jumped. Fortunately, he fell into the arms of the men and they saved him. He was then transported to a hospital.

Interesting words: commit suicide (kill himself), rehabilitation (improving).
