This is the moment a teenager clings on to the edge of a second floor balcony after being shoved over the edge by her angry husband for complaining about a shortage of money.
The incident took place in the district of San Juan de Lurigancho in the western Peruvian capital Lima when the husband, identified as 24-year-old Juan Carlos Aliaga, became embroiled in a row with his 18-year-old wife Marleni Ambi Perez.
According to local media, Perez asked her husband for money and constantly reminded him of the fact that they were too poor.

In the end Aliaga grew angry, and reportedly started to assault his teenage wife, covering her mouth to stop her screaming and then pushing her over the balcony.
At that point, several concerned neighbours came to the scene to help the dangling woman and restrain her husband, according to reports.
In the video, the young woman is seen hanging from the balcony and screaming while neighbours try to lift her up.
One man is seen standing on the balcony ledge while grabbing her hands as others assist in trying to pull the woman to safety.
The emergency services were called to the scene and when they entered the home, Aliaga reacted angrily and allegedly bit one officer and kicked another.
Meanwhile, his 18-year-old wife was taken to hospital to be treated for the injuries she sustained during the alleged attack.
The husband has been arrested as the investigation continues.
