A cheating wife had her dirty laundry very publicly aired after her husband returned home unexpectedly, prompting her lover to make a quick exit via a window.
The unfolding drama was filmed by a baying crowd in Brazil and captures the nail-biting moments the lover - clad only in boxer shorts - dangles precariously from a window, clinging to a rope sheet.
