Jilted bride saved from fall

A REJECTED bride-to-be was pulled to safety yesterday after threatening to jump out of a seventh-floor window in northeast China after her fiancé ended their relationship days before their wedding.

Dressed in her wedding gown, 22-year-old college student Miss Li, sat crying on the window ledge of a building in Changchun city.

Li threatened to jump from the apartment building she lived in, saying she could not live with the fact that her fiancé had left her and married another woman just days before their wedding.

She was eventually saved when a local community officer, Guo Zhong Fan, grabbed her and held her by her shoulders and wedding dress.

Li was sent to hospital following her rescue.
