Saved from the brink of death. This woman was about to jump from a 7th floor window when the firefighter caught her. It happened in Tongren City in southwest China's Guizhou Province on Monday.

The woman's wrist was also cut and blood could be seen on the window sill and her feet. Passersby said she was shouting and laughing from time to time.

The local fire brigade prepared an air cushion on the platform above the third floor as the woman's family helped police persuade her not to jump.

The woman's been sent to hospital for treatment.

Difficult words: window sill (horizontal bottom of the window), passerby (person who walks by), fire brigade (group of fire fighters), platform (flat space), persuade (tell to do something).
