Ahh young love and the dumb things one does to impress somebody. A college student at the University of Pittsburgh was out on a date with a girl and he took her up onto the roof of a restaurant of a bagel place because, well, what’s more romantic than that?
Unfortunately, he didn’t make it and he fell between the buildings. Did he not practice? If you’re going to jump between buildings, make sure you do it a few times when she’s not there. Not that I’ve ever done this or condone jumping over buildings to impress someone.
Ok, moving on.
Fortunately for our building jumper, he didn’t hit the ground, because when he was about three stories down, the gap between the buildings narrowed to about 18 inches and he got stuck.
His date called 911, and a massive crew of rescue workers spent the next four hours getting him out. They had to cut holes in the wall of the Mexican restaurant AND rappel down to get him loose.
He was taken to the hospital with an ankle injury, and was pretty numb from being stuck in there, but was in good shape otherwise.
There’s no word yet on whether he’s going to be facing charges. or whether there’s going to be a second date.
