(Newser) – Dramatic photos tell the tale: A young woman in China dressed in a wedding gown tried to jump to her death from a high-rise but was saved by people inside the building. The 22-year-old had been recently jilted by her fiance, according to local media. She reportedly pushed herself off a seventh-floor ledge, but a man grabbed onto her and helped haul her back to safety. She was taken to a local hospital. MSNBC's PhotoBlog has more images.
