SUZHOU, China, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Firefighters in China's Anhui Province responded to an intersection on a report of a drunk man practicing his martial arts move atop a traffic light.

The man's daring Tai Chi balancing act was caught on video Friday at an intersection in Suzhou.

The intoxicated martial artist refused help from arriving firefighters and insisted on climbing down himself without the use of a ladder.

The man, a 51-year-old unemployed construction worker, told firefighters he had been drinking prior to the incident because he was frustrated by his fruitless job search.
