Grandma With Possible Alzheimer's Climbs Down Apartment Block

Grandma With Possible Alzheimer's Climbs Down Apartment Block

The is the terrifying moment a grandma in China clambered down the outside of a high-rise building after relatives locked her inside a flat. Watch the video below:

In the clip, the 90-year-old woman can be seen carrying a small red canvas bag as she escapes, having been locked in the building after her family feared she was showing signs of dementia.

The incredible video was filmed by her neighbours on 25 April in the Shenghuacheng Residential District in Dayi County, which is in Chengdu, the capital of south-western China's Sichuan Province.

The elderly woman, who is carrying her belongings, lives on the 14th floor, and it is believed that she refused to be confined to the flat when her family went out.

Upon discovering that she had been locked in by her relatives, the woman opened a window and began climbing down the side of the high-rise, using the building's air-conditioning panelling as a ladder.

In the video, which shows several dozen concerned neighbours watching on, the elderly woman slowly makes her way down by stepping on the metal ventilation covers for the air-con units.

She reportedly reached the fifth-floor ledge below and went no further until staff inside the gated community came to her rescue.

They carried her back into the building and to the ground floor, where she was luckily found not to have been injured during her daring escape.

One firefighter told Cover News that he and his colleagues immediately attended to the scene to rescue the woman, adding that she was saved just as they were about to place an inflatable mattress underneath her.

Back in May last year, our attention was caught by Mamoudou Gassama, who goes by the nickname 'Spider-Man' after he scaled a building in less than 30 seconds to save a dangling child.

Mamoudou, an immigrant from Mali, has since been awarded with French citizenship and even a job with the fire brigade.

Mamoudou was also awarded the Honour medal for courage and devotion following a meeting with France's President Emmanuel Macron.

The president shared photos of their meeting at the palace on his Facebook page, saying that the Paris fire brigade 'would be keen to welcome him to their ranks.'

The Malian Spider-Man told the president that he didn't even think about it before he started his terrifying rescue mission. What a LAD.
