Usually at Comic-Con we hear a lot about fictional heroes with names like Superman, Batman, and Spider-Man, but this year it was Amos Carver, Gregg Sergeant, and Scot Schecter who were the real ones performing heroics.
These are the names of the three stuntman who saved a woman from jumping to her death off a 14-story balcony in a San Diego highrise apartment building this weekend.
Although the movie cameras weren't rolling, some amateur footage was recorded of their deeds. Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see their death defying save!
The trio were setting up for a live event when they saw the endangered woman. They then stopped to gather up necessary equipment for the rescue, dashed across three lanes of traffic, climbed a fence, and managed to make it into her unlocked room in time.
Afterwards, they entered quietly so as not to alert her to their presence. Then, with expertise and methodical precision, Gregg grabbed the woman from behind in a bear hug, while Carver and Schecter secured a harness around her.
On the rescue's smooth operation, Carver had this to say:
"We're trained to deal with these situations should they arise. But usually if we do, it's not an innocent civilian. If we're saving somebody, it's a situation we constructed in such a way that they're out on the edge of life or death intentionally to get a certain shot, and we swoop in. But those are people who are expecting this."
Bravo to these three brave men for their courage on and, this time, off-camera!
