At 4:21:28, the cry went out “she jumped!”, as the girl jumped off the window sill. Just as everyone were worrying for her safety, someone’s right arm suddenly reached out from the 7th floor window, catching the girl around her neck, with the left arm reaching out to grab her wedding dress. Apparently, Kuancheng District sub-district office director Guo Zhongfan had read the situation clearly, rushed forward, and grabbed Li X just before her body fell.

Comments from NetEase:


Is it necessary to give up the entire forest for one tree!? That girl simply didn’t think things through at the moment! After some time, she’ll get better! There are plenty of good men in the world! Just like me! If it’s possible, I’m willing to marry her to be my wife!! Does everyone support me in this?


I salute the rescuer! A true man!


Before dying, she wore one time the one thing women want most to wear, which tells us what?


Life is fragile. It wasn’t easy for your parents to raise you. Cherish [your life].


May good things come to good people!


The police aren’t there, only the officials are there, a very timely show [for the people], haha.


Looks like she was exposed for a bit…


Dying is very simple, don’t cause trouble for other people! Everyone’s life is difficult, you’re wasting everyone’s time. And you put on such a bullshit stunt! Nowadays some bullshit people suffer some grievance or difficulty and they make a fuss about suicide. Disgusting!! Fuck~~


Oh my, so frightening. This is a 50 plus kg person falling. If not careful, the person grabbing her above would also be taken down with her.
Saving a person’s life is better than building a seven-story pagoda.
Director Guo, well done, you have my admiration!


Recently, I’ve seen several pieces of this kind of news, and all I want to say is: Those girls need to be more considerate of their parents, and how hard it was for them to raise you up, at the same time resting their old age hopes on you. You committing suicide over a man is truly too selfish (also, you girls need to be more careful when finding boyfriends).


This kind of public servant [government official] is what a good public servant is like~

There are plenty of good men in the world! Personals @ chinaSMACK.
