,Had I lost my grip, I would have been on the 15th floor… Suddenly many people present there came and handled the situation. I fainted, they gave me water. Then I realized how responsible we should be when we go wherever. So this was an incident in which I felt that I had narrowly escaped. If I had any memory, I would have fallen,“He revealed.
