Two women who were struggling over a man decided to take test him, and so they both jumped into a river to see who he would save first. The man found himself in a sticky situation when his current girlfriend and his ex both threw themselves into a river - as a way to prove which one he loved the most.
Wu Hsia, 21, had broken up with long-term girlfriend Jun Tang, 20, after meeting new love 22-year-old Rong Tsao. But over the following three months, jilted Jun kept hassling him to get back with her and so she decided to arrange a meeting between the three of them. When they gathered at a beauty spot in Ningbo, in eastern China’s Zhejiang province, the situation quickly went to pieces.
A police spokesman said:
"The girls began arguing and the man's ex-girlfriend felt insulted by a comment made by the new girlfriend, and so she jumped into the river calling for her former lover to save her. The new girlfriend, fearing that he might indeed jump in to save his ex-lover, then jumped in as well and both of them began calling for him to rescue them from drowning."
Wu settled the matter by jumping in the water to save his current girlfriend, and then taking the soaking wet and slightly injured young woman to hospital.
The police spokesman added:
"He called his brother on the way home and told him to go to the river and rescue the ex-girlfriend."
Wu’s brother in turn called the fire brigade who arrived at the scene and helped Jun out of the water.
A rescue worker said:
"She was taken to hospital but was released soon after without any major injuries."
The story has gone viral in China, where there is a chronic shortage of women due to the country's one child policy. So to have two women fighting over one man is so rare, it is usually the other way around.
