In a viral video, a woman can be seen holding on to a man's hand while she is hanging from the balcony of a high rise in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh. A few seconds later, her grip loosens and she falls down from the 9th floor.

The good news is that the woman survived the fall, says a report by NDTV. The residents of the society had hurried to set mattresses on the ground. So, the woman fell on the mattresses instead of the ground. However, according to the police, she is in a critical condition.

The incident reportedly took place on Tuesday evening.

As per the report, witnesses told the police, that the lady was having a heated argument with the man (possibly her husband) on the balcony of their home.

During the argument, she suddenly climbed over the railings and jumped. The man, however, managed to catch her hand. He held on to her hand for almost three minutes and tried to bring her to safety. During this time, the alerted residents put up mattresses on the ground.

"The woman is still unconscious. We will record her statement once she comes to her senses. The picture will be clear only after that," a police official said to NDTV.
