A DRUNKEN woman has been rescued a split second before she would have fallen from an apartment clothes hanger several floors up in China.
Firefighters rushed to the building and broke into the home in an attempt to pull her from the inside after passers-by spotted her stuck in the hanger.
The woman can be seen in the video sitting on one of the iron bars of the hanger and supporting herself on the two upper bars.
Luckily, rescuers managed to put a safety belt around the woman just as the iron bar at the bottom suddenly broke off.
A firefighter reached out to catch her just before she fell.
The woman, in her 20s, refused to answer any questions after she was brought safely down.
The reason why she had climbed out of the windows and ended up in the clothes hanger is still under investigation.
