A CONFUSED boyfriend was faced with a tricky choice after both his ex and current girlfriend threw themselves into a river to see who he would rescue.
Wu Hsia, 21, had broken up with long-term girlfriend Jun Tang, 20, after meeting new love Rong Tsao, 22, in Ningbo city in east China’s Zhejiang province.
But over the following three months, jilted Jun kept hassling him to get back with her and pressuring Rong to leave him.
Eventually, Wu decided to arrange a meeting between the three of them at a nearby park next to a river. “I was sick of being nagged from both sides,” he said.
“Rong was moaning about Jun and Jun was moaning about her and it all go too much.
“I became confused about who I wanted so I thought it would be best if we all met and talked about it.”
But when they got to the river, the situation went from bad to worse.
“The girls began arguing and then Jun flipped and jumped off the bridge and straight into the water.
“She was calling for help but then Rong also leapt over saying it was her or my ex.
“I was completely dumbfounded about what was going on.
“But then I realised that I had to do something so I also jumped in but to save Rong.”
After dragging the soaking wet girl ashore, Wu phoned his brother to rescue the floundering ex before taking Rong home.
Meanwhile Wu’s brother called the fire brigade who arrived at the scene and helped Jun out of the water.
“She was taken to hospital but was released soon after without any major injuries,” a hospital spokesman said.
“I was put in a difficult situation and had to make a choice between right and wrong,” Wu admitted.
“And I chose Rong.”
