Chinese lovers' balcony tiff turns deadly with window-dangling mishap

New York, August 13 (ANI): A Chinese couple had a close shave with death, after the two were left dangling from a balcony, following a heated argument.

The unknown woman was on her fifth-floor balcony window when the fight occurred with her boyfriend, who was on the floor below, the New York Daily News reported.

The lady had apparently slipped from her floor and when her beau tried to grab her, the velocity of the fall dragged him over the edge too.

A CCTV camera caught the pair, from Harbin, Heilongjiang province, hanging for their dear lives on the ledge.

The footage showed that a neighbor rushed over to the apartment's balcony and grabbed the man's legs as other neighbors joined to push the couple back inside.

Firefighters arrived at the building and it took further 20 minutes for the building inhabitants and rescue workers to bring the pair to safety. (ANI)
