Shandong – A man in China's Shandong province fell from the façade while working on a high-rise building. His safety rope was able to protect him from falling into the depths, but he got caught in it with his neck, as a video from Newsflare now shows. Thanks to attentive office staff, however, the man could still be rescued from his distress.
Man falls on the façade of high-rise building – and gets caught in the safety rope
The footage is circulating online and shows an employee filming the action on the 34th floor of the skyscraper's office interiors. Outside the window, a man can be seen who has caught his neck on the rope that keeps him from falling into the depths. He supports himself with his foot on an outdoor railing.

As a result, the man had gradually lost consciousness and his complexion had already turned purple. His plight recognizes office workers from the interiors. One of the employees runs with a hammer to the man hanging on the façade and starts smashing the window.
Helpers save man at high-rise building through the window from falling into the depths
The resistance of the pane seems to be relatively thick – as is usual for a high-rise building. In addition, the rescuers have to proceed cautiously, as they smash the very window behind which the man is trapped. Nevertheless, they manage to break open the window and thereby save the man into the interior of the building. The man had escaped with minor injuries. In Sydney, too, there was recently an emergency when a major fire broke out in a high-rise building. In Paris, there has been a curious incident of drug dealers in a high-rise building asking residents to respect the house rules.
