This is the moment a drunk woman spotted sitting on her 8th-floor window is pushed back into her home by a pair of abseiling firefighters.

The unnamed homeowner from the city of Dandong in China’s north-eastern Liaoning Province is said to have been intoxicated and threatened to jump from the residential building.

Footage of the rescue on 27th July shows the woman sitting on her windowsill as two uniformed firemen lower themselves from the building’s roof down to her top-floor flat.

They land in front of the unsuspecting woman, who they push back into her window as she struggles.

Authorities on standby outside her door then also broke into the home to help subdue her, with rescuers later piggybacking her down the steps.

The Dandong fire service said they were unable to set up an inflatable cushion on the ground below due to a large flower bed.

Their only option was to attempt a rescue.

In the video, witnesses can be heard cheering as firefighters secure the woman in her home.

According to the authorities, the woman’s husband returned home to find the door locked and called the police for help.

It is still unclear why the woman threatened to throw herself from the building.
