LINFEN, CHINA (NBC) - A drunk man in China decided to wow onlookers by climbing on to some high voltage power lines.

The man dangled some 30 feet up in the air from the power lines.

Scared onlookers called the local fire department and power company, which cut off the power supply to the area.

Firefighters set up a net under the man, and after clinging to the cables for 15 minutes, he fell safely to the ground.

Rescuers said the man is in relatively good shape considering the excessive amount of alcohol in his body.
