Police were called to rescue a woman who attempted to commit suicide because her husband refused to buy her a purse.
Police in China, received a call to rescue the 30-year-old woman who jumped into the lake in Dezhou, Shandong.
According to a video uploaded to the Internet, the woman had been sitting in the water for over 20 minutes and refused to come out.
When police arrived, the woman ignored their orders for her to leave the lake.
Meanwhile, her angry husband stood at the edge of the lake and yelled at the woman. The woman did not allow officers to come close to her.
She did however, agree to have her husband come and drag her out of the water.
However, rather than saving his wife, the couple continued to argue in the water. The man suddenly grabbed his wife by the neck and pushed her head underwater.
Police officers quickly jumped into the lake and saved the woman.
The two were taken to the police station. The woman allegedly told police that she wanted to end her life because her husband refused to buy her a purse.
Officers were able to calm the couple down. The man apologized to his wife and promised not to hurt her again.
