Yesterday morning at about 9:00, firefighters in Hefei stopped a 40-year-old woman from jumping off a bridge after her first failed attempt . According to the fire department, the woman was seen at there same spot at noon the previous day ,attempting to jump . For some unknown reasons ,she later decided to give up her plans , came down the bridge by herself and walked pass bystanders and security agents without altering a single word .
Surprisingly ,she returned the next morning to there same spot looking more determined to make her move . By the time firefighters arrived, she was already sitting on the edge of the bridge and kept shouting, “If you come closer , I’ll jump down right away.”
Firefighters immediately divided into two groups, one laid a life-saving mat under the bridge, while the other tried persuading her to get off the bridge . After about half an hour of unsuccessful persuasion , the rescue agents succeeded in diverting her attention towards a nearby waiting ambulance , and immediately grabbed her .She was taken off the bridge and handed over to the police .
