‘Kick-Ass 2’ Stuntmen Saved A Drunk Woman From Jumping Off A Building In San Diego

Tragedy was prevented on Thursday when a group of stuntmen in town for Kick-Ass 2 saved an apparently drunk and suicidal woman from jumping off the 14th-floor railing of a San Diego highrise, according to KUSI.

San Diego police Lt. Kevin Mayer said the woman had been feeling suicidal and drinking alcohol prior to her climb over the balcony at the building at Eighth Avenue and Market Street about 2:45 p.m. Thursday.

A crowd of people formed below as the women clung to the edge, he said. Three stuntmen from Los Angeles-based 911 Stunts who were working nearby for an event to promote Kick-Ass 2 took action, Mayer said. They scaled a fence and asked a security guard for the woman’s floor, then gained entry into her residence, according to the lieutenant.

One of the stuntmen ran to the woman and grabbed her in a bear hug, while the others strapped her into a harness, secured her and pulled her back over, Mayer said. (Via)

Assuming she gets better, and we hope she does, we know one person who’ll stay through the Kick-Ass 2 credits.
