This is a dramatic moment in China, Zhejiang province. A policeman jumps from the side of a building because he wants to stop a man who wants to jump down.

The man was standing on part of a window on the fourth floor. He wanted to jump. He wanted to kill himself. Another policeman was talking to him on a loudspeaker from another window.

People on the street watched the policemen who tried to stop the man. The man wanted to jump because he had problems in his family.
