2011 March 31st around 12 o’clock noon, Tianjin, a stark naked woman suffering from mental illness climbed to the top of a high-voltage electricity tower and was shocked onto a strut nearly 20 meters above the ground. Through cooperation between the fire department, electric company, and many other departments, she was rescued down and sent to the hospital.
After the power company cut the electricity to the tower, firefighters climbed up and harnessed the woman to be brought down.
Owing to the woman not being able to move due to the electrical shock, 3 emergency repair workers who were more familiar with the environment also climbed up the high-voltage tower to participate in the rescue.
Through over 2 hours of effort, the woman was finally successfully brought to the ground.
