A Chinese young man decided to protest on an electricity pylon until his girlfriend took him back and accepted his marriage proposal!
But as police brought her to the scene of the drama, the young man hurried down and stepped on a steel support strut while he was still holding onto a high voltage cable and burst into flame.
Witnesses called emergency services and when firefighters arrived, they found the man's clothes had been burnt off his skin but he was still breathing.
He was stretchered to a waiting ambulance and rushed to hospital. Doctors say he suffered serious burns, but is now out of danger.
Unfortunately, his ex-girlfriend was less than impressed with the stunt, which she called 'stupid' and 'too extreme', and rejected his proposal.
