A dramatic rescue in China, Zhejiang province, as a policeman swings from the side of a building to stop a man from jumping off.

The intervention came after the man who had been standing on a fourth-storey ledge threatening to jump was distracted by another officer talking to him on a loudspeaker from a window below.

Crowds watch from the street as officers inside the building helped to secure the man who according to reports had been suffering from problems in his family.
