Firefighter abseils down one storey and kicks girl in shoulders -- to save her

A suicidal Korean woman's life was saved thanks to a firefighter who kicked her off the window ledge and back into her flat.

In a video uploaded onto YouTube last Saturday (Apr 22), a woman dressed in white can be seen sitting on the railings of a balcony window in a high-rise apartment. 

A firefighter, dressed in an orange uniform, calmly gets onto the ledge one storey above her, and in one swift move, he abseils down and pushes her back into her flat with a kick to the shoulders. 

The video has since been viewed more than 340,000 times. 

A netizen who commented on the video said: "She flew back so fast. But that’s good. I applaud the guy that had to do what he had to do."
