A young firefighter in China lost his life while attempting to save a woman from jumping off the roof of a building.

The tragic incident occurred on Nov 12, in Bozhou city located in Anhui province.

Video footage captured of the incident showed a woman standing on the rooftop and a fireman in bright orange overalls appearing to close in from behind her.

However, as the woman made a sudden move, the fireman lunged from behind to grab her, but the pair end up falling off the roof and plunging to the ground.

According to reports, the woman died in the hospital after emergency treatment failed, while the 24-year-old firefighter died hours later.
