A Chinese man heavily in debt spent five hours blocking traffic when finally a passer by got fed up and pushed him off the bridge he was considering jumping from.
Chen Fuchao (no f word jokes please) was about 2 million chinese Yuan in debt, around $290,000 (or one shelf worth of Chinese goods at Walmart).
So he stood on a bridge where 6 other jumpers had ended their lives for around five hours blocking traffic.
66-year-old Lai Jiansheng was fed up with Chen’s “selfish activity” and after breaking though a police cordon pushed Chen off the bridge.
Chen landed on a partially inflated air bag and suffered injuries to his elbow and back.
Lai Jiansheng was detained but released by police after the incident.
Lai posed with a salute after pushing the suicidal man off the bridge.
