A mentally-ill woman was electrocuted in China after she climbed onto a high-voltage electricity tower.

The woman, who was naked, was barely conscious after suffering electrocution from the live wires on the tower located along a road intersection in Tianjin, reported AsiaOne. The incident took place two Thursdays ago, on 31 March 2011.

According to China Smack, the woman was stuck nearly 20 metres above the ground and hung in mid-air on the tower which carried 220,000 volts of electricity.

The rescue operation spanned over two hours and involved cooperation from many departments, including the fire department and the electricity company.

The woman has since been admitted into hospital for treatment and is reported to be in  stable condition.
