In a horrific incident, a woman was seen falling off from the balcony of a high-rise building in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad in a viral video. In the video, the woman can be seen holding on to a man’s hand (allegedly her husband) while hanging from the balcony. Seconds later, she falls down after the man makes an unsuccessful attempt to pull her up. Despite the free fall from such a height, the woman survived after residents of the society managed to place mattresses on the ground below her just before she fell. According to NDTV, witnesses told the police that the woman was having a heated argument with the man when she suddenly climbed over the railings and tried to jump.
The man managed to hold on to her for almost three minutes from their ninth-floor balcony before she fell and residents barely managed to place the mattresses below her before an impact with the ground. Although she survived due to the quick thinking of the residents, she was immediately taken to the hospital and is currently in critical condition.
