One woman was spotted on Saturday dangling in her underwear from a power line outside a Liaoning apartment building after falling from a 5th floor window. Depending on what you want to believe, she was either a clumsy mistress who fell while trying to make a quick getaway or an unfortunate housewife who slipped while cleaning the windows.
Yesterday, photos and videos of the incident, which took place in the city of Benxi, began popping up online. According to The Cover, the woman passed out quickly while hanging upside down and onlookers called emergency services who arrived a short time later to get her down and wake her up.
While the details of the incident have not yet been confirmed, that hasn’t stopped rumors from running wild on the Chinese internet. Some speculate that the barely-dressed woman was a mistress who had been forced to hide outside her lover’s 5th floor apartment when his wife unexpectedly arrived home, only to slip and fall.
A more believable version of the story is that the woman simply fell while cleaning her windows — the most dangerous chore in China.
Either way, she was extremely lucky to be yet another person saved by the plethora of power lines in Chinese cities.
