China Press and Sin Chew Daily reported that a naked 19-year-old girl was rescued after she was found clinging on to the window of a hotel in Singapore.
Police and civil defence department personnel brought her down using a skylift.
The girl, who is believed to be in a state of shock, was seen crying non-stop for her mother.
A passer-by known only as Daim, had earlier tried to calm her down while waiting for help.
A police spokesman told newsmen that the girl had been detained to facilitate investigations for allegedly attempting to commit suicide.
