Hotels can be pricey, but most would happily pay that and more if it meant avoiding a risky climb from a high-rise window.
But a man in China has different priorities.
Edge-of-your seat footage appears to show him trying to flee a hotel bill by escaping through a window roughly 19 floors up.
It is an agonising watch as he dangles from a telephone wire at a giddying height.

Though his escape from his hotel didn't work out, he was rescued from a worse fate as firefighters eventually got him down.
