Taiwanese rescue personnel received a call for emergency assistance on the afternoon of Jul 2, at about 12.10pm, of reports about a female sitting on a window ledge on the seventh storey.
According to Shin Min Daily News, authorities realised it was Taiwanese actress and singer Suzanne Hsiao when they arrived -- who had locked herself in her bedroom and climbed outside. She was reportedly about to jump when firefighters arrived to break in.
Her mother had been at home and quickly let them into the house. Hsiao's manager had also rushed to the scene upon receiving news.
Hsiao's mother held the actress' hand, while firefighters rushed to pull her to safety before something unthinkable happened.
