Muscat: A man who tried to commit suicide by jumping off a building in Al Khuwair on Wednesday night was rescued by Oman's Public Authority for Civil Defence and Ambulance (PACDA), who worked with the Royal Oman Police.

A statement from PACDA read, "Rescue teams and Royal Oman Police in Muscat managed to thwart an individual's attempt to commit suicide from the roof of a building in Al Khuwair."

PACDA also shared a video from the moment the man was rescued, in which the crowd can be seen cheering as soon as the rescuer pulls the man to safety on top of the fire engine's ladder. The man then goes on to hug his rescuer.
