A man suffered serious burns after climbing a high-voltage electricity pylon in an attempt to propose to his girlfriend.
The would-be Romeo attempted the stunt two days after he has split up with his girlfriend in Quanzhou, southern China.
In an effort to win her back, he decided to climb a pylon near to where she worked and cover it in signs declaring his love and asking her to marry him.

But after ascending the metal pylon, he was electrocuted and thrown off into a muddy puddle below.
Witnesses called emergency services and when firefighters arrived on the scene, they found the man's clothes had been virtually burnt off his skin but he was still breathing.
He was stretchered to a waiting ambulance and rushed to hospital. Doctors say he suffered serious burns, but is now out of danger.
Unfortunately, his ex-girlfriend was less than impressed with the stunt, which she called 'stupid' and 'too extreme', and rejected his proposal.
Too extreme? TOO EXTREME? The dude got himself electrocuted for love. This woman is clearly a cold-hearted bitch. And women wonder why we hate commitment. Climb a pole to propose and end up falling to your almost death (look at that picture, dude is barbeque) and you say NO. Too Extreme. What the fuck. Dude is having the worst week ever by far.
