The incident was caught on camera by onlookers in southwest China's Guizhou
A man in China went to obscene lengths (heights in this case) to avoid paying his hotel bill. He climbed onto telephone wires dangling outside the hotel and tried to cross over to another high-rise building. But his luck ran out and he was found hanging mid-air after getting stuck between two wires. The unidentified man was hanging close to high-tension power lines, reportedly 19 floors above the ground.
The incident happened in China's Guizhou on Friday and was caught on camera by several people standing below. Video showed the man precariously hanging from the wires and struggling to keep his grip.
It's not clear how much the hotel bill was but safe to say it wasn't worth risking his life.
He was rescued by the fire department and taken away.
