WEIHAI - A police van in China's eastern Shandong province got stuck in mid-air between a building and a concrete ledge after the driver lost control of the vehicle.

The Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) police van drove off the road in Weihai city as it was trying to avoid hitting other vehicles on Sunday, according to Sina Weibo, China's microblogging platform.

South China Morning Post quoted Chinese state media as saying the SWAT van ended up in its gravity-defying position three storeys above ground due to "improper operation". There were no reported injuries.

The Weihai Police Department posted a mild reprimand on their Weibo account.
