One of the rescuers hung from a nearby balcony and tried to push the girl into an apartment with a stick, but she came back. After that, she was blasted with a water cannon.
Why the woman wanted to jump off the balcony (it was the fourth floor) has not been reported, but it is known that she was later given medical assistance.
Before that, rescuers tried to convince her not to jump for half an hour.
