Mumbai: In a dramatic situation, a middle-aged woman has climbed on to the ledge of the 18th floor of a 21-storey building in Wadala.
She has been seen taking selfies, pictures of the surroundings and police officers with a smart phone in hand. Wearing a salwar kameez, her identity is still unknown. Nearly 25 policemen and 20 fire brigade officials are carrying out rescue operations.
"We have set up a landing balloon on the ground. And there is a manual landing balloon ready on the eighth floor," a fire brigade official said.
The woman climbed up to the 18th floor at around 10.30 am and the police rescue team reached at 11:00 am after receiving a call. "The woman does not appear stressed or mentally unstable," said an official who spoke to her.
