Woman who fell through disused glass walkway rescued by firefighters in China


A woman who fell through a disused glass walkway was rescued by firefighters in northern China.

Video taken in Handan City, Hebei province on November 24 shows a rescuer climbing down through a broken glass panel to pull the 50-year-old woman up.

The rescue operation took about 30 minutes, after which the victim was taken to paramedics at the scene to receive medical treatment.

The lady allegedly ignored warning signs posted at the entrance to not use the abandoned glass walkway. She then fell five metres down a cracked portion of the corridor.
