Woman survives jump from 27th floor of high-rise

A woman who jumped from the 27th floor of a high-rise building in eastern China Thursday in a suicide attempt is in stable condition after treatment, doctors said yesterday.

The 29-year-old woman, surnamed Chen, jumped from a window of the Haishu Shiji Plaza in Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province, at midday Thursday.

Miraculously, she survived after she landed on tree boughs and then fell onto a car.

Police said she had not landed head first, which probably contributed to her survival.

She suffered lung injuries and fractures in her left leg and she would likely survive, said a doctor at the Ningbo No. 2 People's Hospital.

Her husband said she suffered from depression two years ago when giving birth.

A spokesman for Ningbo Police said there were no suspicious circumstances regarding the incident.
