In a shocking incident, a woman jumped off a residential building in Malad West, Mumbai, after the tower caught fire on Saturday morning. The fire was put out without reporting any casualties.
In a video which has gone viral on social media, the building can be seen spewing thick black plumes of smoke as two rooms in the third floor of the tower engulfed with flames.
Amid various clips of the incident that has surfaced online, one particular video shows a woman uncomfortably perched on the edge of the balcony of one of the burning rooms. Further in the footage, a ladder can be seen being placed against the outer wall of the building to help the woman come down. However, instead of using the ladder to save herself, she suddenly jumps off from the considerable height leaving everyone in shock.
