Video: Firefighter saves suicidal man by kicking him

Standing at the ledge, a firefighter kicked the man so he'd fall onto an airbag set up below

By FireRescue1 Staff

Video shows a firefighter saving a suicidal man by kicking him onto an airbag.

Statter911 points us to this video, where the man stands at the edge of a thin metal bar looking down. A firefighter slowly brings his leg up and kicks the man hard enough for him to lose his balance and fall safely to the airbag set up below.

It is unclear where this happened, but the man appears to have survived the fall.
