High-rise rescues for Chinese first responders: in one video two dramatic operations
In the first part of the video a threatened suicide is prevented. In the second a child whose curiosity has left him hanging in mid-air with his body stuck between the bars of a window cage on the 8th floor. Chinese broadcaster NTDTV shows how fire fighters managed to save the unfortunate protagonists from falling to their deaths from a height of 30 metres.
Rescue workers inflate an air cushion at the foot of the office block, then carry out their rescue attempt at height, with techniques that may appear slightly unorthodox, but certainly effective. Speed of intervention was crucial in both cases for a successful rescue outcome.
