New Delhi, Dec 23 (ANI): An incredibly brave fireman climbed up to the 30th floor of a residential building in Shanghai with the help of a human ladder to save a woman stuck there.

The woman got stuck after a fire broke out, reports the China Daily.

Firefighters formed a human ladder by stepping on each other’’s shoulders from a windowsill on the 29th floor to rescue her.

Wearing just a bed gown, the woman climbed out of her window and waited on a narrow windowsill clinging to a scorching window frame to prevent herself from plunging 80 m to her death.

Just as she was rescued the fire engulfed the window frame she had clung to for some 20 minutes, fortunately she escaped uninjured. (ANI)
