refused to sign a marriage contract with her daughter.
The woman in her 40's perched on the windowsill of a dormitory on Saturday at a college in
Shenyang, capital of Liaoning Province, saying her daughter had been jilted by the teacher.
The mother also forced the man to sign a bill of debt of 50,000 Yuan (US$6.200) as a betrothal gift.
She removed herself from danger once the young man finally gave in.
