A woman in Anhui province tried to kill herself recently, but was fortunately prevented from doing so by her winter wear.
The woman jumped into a river near Fuyang city on Tuesday and tried to drown herself following a family dispute. However, because of the thick, cotton-padded clothing that she was wearing, she was unable to sink down into the fairly shallow water.
When rescuers arrived, she was floating on the surface of the river, refusing to come back to the shore. So instead, firefighters went down and dragged her freezing body out of the river before she was rushed to the hospital.
Her story is similar to that of a Guangdong woman who tried to drown herself in a river in February, only to find that her fat made her float back up to the surface.
