Posted: Updated:

A Chinese burglary suspect found himself clinging for life after a botched attempt at breaking into a fifth story apartment.

As the BBC reports, the man had to be rescued by firefighters after getting stuck trying to climb through a small window. One rescuer climbed outside the apartment while the rest of the team pulled from inside.

It reportedly took firefighters in Anshan, Liaoning Province about 30 minutes to get the suspect to safety, and the man was promptly arrested afterward.
