A middle-aged man attempted suicide by jumping off a viaduct in Hangzhou, but was stopped by a massive inflatable people-catcher, according to Wangyi News.
When police arrived at the scene, the man wielded a knife and threatened to slash it across his neck, before leaping off the bridge from an advertisement board and landing on an emergency inflatable pad set up by the fire department. The incident resulted in massive traffic jams along the neighbouring roads.
