A policeman had two teeth knocked out and may have more pulled after the rescue of a drunk man stuck on a rooftop in Henan Province didn't go as planned.

The officer surnamed Qi, 37, in the city of Xinyang was called to the scene after the man was spotted on the top of a two-story house on September 8.

The man appeared to be drunk and unable to get out of his predicament.

Qi first collected bags of rice to break the stranded man's fall and ordered him to jump.

When Qi tried to break his fall, however, he was knocked down and landed on his face, knocking out his teeth.

The drunk man fell on the rice bags without injury.

"I wanted to catch him so that my body could buffer him from the shock," Qi said from a hospital bed while receiving treatment.

Qi is to have four teeth pulled as a result of his injuries, his wife told the reporter.
