Almost a miracle saved the life of a cleaning lady at the Greek Parliament when the part of the glass skylight roof broke and she found herself hovering in the air for several minutes.

A policeman apparently accompanying the cleaning crew and some of her colleagues grabbed her and dragged her to safety. The woman was taken to first aid station of the Parliament.

While there are major questions about the safety rules in the Parliament, media report that the woman was tied with a safety belt.

UPDATE: it turned out the woman was not a cleaning lady but an officer from inspection team.

PS I personally see no safety belt…
