    WOW that is an incredible save. That Firefighter timed that well. Obviously the suicide jumper was jumping from one or more floors above them.

    His back probably sounded like a zipper, as well!

    I agree!! I can't stop a baseball rolling across a field and he catches a person falling past him out a window!

    The jumper will likely sue him for ruining a perfectly good suicide. "He didn't save my life, he ruined my suicide!"

    Yea, and probably would win in today's courts, because the firefighter infringed on their rights to decide to do what they want with their body, <rolling eyes>

    That is amazing! He must have been running on pure adrenaline and/or been incredibly strong.
