A huge crowd gathered after this naked woman high on drugs climbed onto an externally mounted air conditioning unit on the 11th floor of a posh Chinese hotel – and started dancing for her audience.
Police and firemen including officers specially trained in dealing with suicide victims gathered at the scene after reports that the woman was perched on the windowsill of the hotel in Beizhan Road, in Liuzhou City in southern China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
She was initially on the windowsill, itself only an inch or so wide, but when people came into the room, she moved on to the air conditioning unit.
Police spokesman Shi Wan, 48, said: "She showed absolutely no interest in speaking to the negotiators. She also didn't seem particularly suicidal although she was very excitable. But it wasn't exactly clear what about."
He said that a large crowd had gathered below taking photographs of the naked woman and that one officer had handed her a towel from the bathroom suggesting that she cover herself up. They had also offered her breakfast and some water thinking that they might be able to grab her in the process, but the attempt to give her food and drink had only made her more upset and caused her to again stand on the air conditioner.
Shi Wan said: "It was clear that we weren't going to get anywhere with the normal method, so we took a step back for a while but then an elderly cleaner came into the room and asked a question and we noticed that the woman seemed to react to her voice. So we asked the cleaner to speak to the woman, which seemed to work quite well. It also provided the opportunity for a fireman attached to a rope to approach the window behind the old woman – and then he suddenly grabbed the naked woman."
Other rescuers then rushed to the window and dragged the kicking and screaming naked woman inside by force.
Shi Wan added: "It appears she turned up at the hotel last night with a man, who left much earlier in the morning and she remained in the room. A powder that we believe to be drugs were found on the side, and a urine test confirmed that the woman had been taking drugs."
