From the NC Times:
A hospital emergency room technician and an Escondido police officer saved a suicidal patient Sunday night, “miraculously” grabbing the patient’s arm after he’d thrown himself off a five-story drop, authorities said Monday.
About 8:40 p.m Sunday, the patient was in an internal stairwell, between the fifth and sixth floors at Palomar Medical Center, and threatening to jump. The worker, Chad Brabander, was trying to persuade him not to do so, Escondido police said.
But the patient jumped.
Brabander caught the man’s wrist as he started his plunge, catching him in midair, Escondido police said.
