Subject: Fw: A teenage girl in China has stopped a boy from committing suicide with a simple kiss
The incident occurred at a shopping mall in Shenzhen, when Liu Wenxiu was passing by a pedestrian bridge in the Guang Province, where Wenxiu noticed crowds gathering around an unknown man who was clinging to a barrier on the mall's highest floor.
According to local television, the boy’s mother had passed away, his stepmother didn’t treat him well and she left with all his father’s money.
"The young man was on the outside of the barrier and was holding a knife to his chest but nobody seemed to be trying to talk him round," Wenxiu said, according to Orange News. "I wanted to help him but the police wouldn't let me through so I lied and told them he was my boyfriend and that he wanted to kill himself because of me."
"They let me talk to him and he told me he was sad because he was from a broken family," she explained. "I'm also from a broken family too and understood him perfectly.
"His story touched me and I felt like I really was his girlfriend and I could help him."
The negotiation on the bridge ended like a romantic movie when Liu hugged the boy and kissed him unexpectedly. Police took advantage of the situation to take away the boy’s knife and pull him inside the handrail of the bridge.
Liu left after the rescue, but local police needed her help again because the boy refused to reveal his story without her presence.
