An 11-year-old girl in Kaohsiung had to kneel down to plead with her 36-year-old mother not to jump off a building, reported Kwong Wah Yit Poh.
It is believed that the mother, known only as Wu, had attempted to jump from the roof of the 14-storey building after a misunderstanding with her friends on Wednesday.
Upon being alerted, firemen rushed to the scene but could not inflate an air cushion to catch her as the area was too narrow.
They then told Wu's husband and daughter, who was in Year Five, to persuade her to come down from the building.
"Mama, please don't jump!" pleaded the girl, who managed to convince her mother to change her mind.
The woman was later sent to the hospital for a check-up.
