“This is the last meal of my life. This takeout order must be delivered to me! ” wrote on the special request form, according to a note posted on asiaone.com.
Although the messenger doubted if it was a joke, he understood that every minute was “critical” and rushed to the man’s house.
When no one opened the door, the messenger alerted the police for help.
In a Weibo video shared by The Paper on December 19, it showed the dramatic exchange between rescuers and the distraught man, who threatened to jump out the window if the door was knocked down.
The man, who had taken a large number of sleeping pills, was beginning to lose consciousness when rescuers managed to enter his apartment in time and took him out of harm’s way.
After taking the man to the hospital, the police also contacted his parents to speak with him.
