A Chinese man earlier this week was so distraught over losing his job and tried to jump out the window to end it all, till his wife grabbed him by the boxers and foiled his attempt.

According to the Daily Mail, Wang Li decided to kill himself by jumping out the window of his sixth story apartment.  When his wife saw him heading for the window she followed him and as he jumped she grabbed him by his boxers.

The man was hanging upside down with his cheeks exposed for all the world to see as she hung on to him to keep him form falling.  She got a better grip on him by his legs and held him there for twenty minutes till help could arrive.
