Quick action from responders save this man's life after he jumps from a building in an apparent suicide attempt


RUSSIA — Video shows firefighters quickly positioning an inflated cushion to break a man's fall after he jumps from the top of a building.

The man is standing at the top of a four-floor building when he quickly jumps, the firefighters getting there just in time to break his fall as the man lands near the edge of the cushion.

Medics rush in, as the man seemingly losses consciousness after the fall, and is strapped to a stretcher and rushed into an ambulance.

It is unclear why the man wanted to take his life and what his current condition is.
