One South Korean firefighter is being hailed a hero after he saved the life of a suicidal woman as she sat on the edge of a balcony, six stories up.
As the woman contemplated jumping from the balcony, the firefighter entered the apartment above. He tethered himself to the railing and in one quick motion, he jumped and swung into the balcony below, forcefully kicking the woman back off of the ledge.
There is no doubt the kick to the chest probably hurt, but at least this woman wasn’t able to make a quick, poor decision to end her life.
The woman was said to have been distracted by police inside the building while the fire fighter attempted his daring move. After she was knocked inside, the woman was then rescued by the team within the building
