China's state media says a drunken Chinese man climbed on high voltage wires and dangled for 15 minutes before falling onto a cushion set up by rescuers in northern China.

The local power company was forced to cut electricity in the area. A firefighter climbed a nearby pole and tried to persuade the man to get down...but he wasn't budging-Until he suddenly fell onto a second layer of wires, where he dangled precariously for about 15 minutes before losing his strength and falling...onto an inflatable cushion.

China's state TV said he wasn't injured but he did have excessive amounts of alcohol in his blood.
