A man who was spending the night in his married lover's home had to jump out of a 7th floor window when the husband came home unexpectedly.
A Chinese man who was spending the night with his married lover, was left hanging on the window ledge of a seven storey building for several hours, after the woman's husband who was out of town on business, came back home unannounced, reports Daily Mail.
The Shishi, Fujian Province man, took the deadly risk and climbed out of the window to escape from the woman's husband and was rescued by firefighters after the man had left for work in the morning.
The cheating wife only called the fire service to rescue her stranded lover once her husband had left for work the next morning.
The man originally denied knowing how he had come to be on the ledge, but the cheating wife soon confessed.
She admitted bringing the man home as her husband was away on a business trip but however, they were very nearly caught out when he unexpectedly came home early.
Luckily for the man, he was fully clothed when the husband returned, and so he didn't get too chilly out on the ledge.
According to a fire brigade spokesman, the man had 'been drinking a fair amount' which may have given him the courage to jump from the window to the ledge during his escape.
But when he had sobered up by the morning, 'he realised it would be extremely foolish to attempt to climb back into the flat,' the spokesman said.
For several hours, the man managed to crouch between a couple of air-conditioning units on the narrow ledge until his lover's husband had left for work.
The firemen who were unable to rescue him with a ladder, later attached a rope to him and pulled him back through the window to safety.
