We have seen many videos showing firefighters around the rest of the world generally handling people threatening to jump to their deaths differently than we do in the United States. A lot of the clips are of firefighters intervening and grabbing the person as someone distracts them. But the video above is a little more unique. In this case a firefighter kicked a man off the ledge onto the airbag set up below. No indication where this occurred (or when … it could be old for all I know), but I found a somewhat similar move from a bridge incident in China a while back.
In the U.S., there was the lawsuit settlement in San Fransicso from the 2006 incident where a firefighter’s intervention didn’t work out so well.
