Good Samaritan saves woman who jumped from Oakland’s stadium deck

Oakland-area police say that a former Marine and current Oakland Raiders season-ticket holder helped save a woman's life by breaking her fall as she jumped from the third-level deck of the O.co Coliseum after Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans.

Per reports, the woman jumped about 45 feet shortly after the Raiders' 23-19 loss to the Titans as fans were filing out of the stadium. The man reportedly shouted, "don't do it" as she was poised to jump, but he stepped in and helped cushion her fall.

The woman was critically injured but did not die, and the Marine is credited with helping save her life.

"He saved her life quite honestly, at his own expense," Alameda County Sheriff's Sgt. J.D. Nelson told the Oakland Tribune. "This guy 100 percent saved her life. She'd be dead now."
The man was not identified.

Nelson said the woman was in a seating area that was covered by a tarp and appeared to be by herself when she jumped. Nelson told KTVU-TV that he lunged toward the falling woman and was knocked down and taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.

A sad story but one with a good ending. Hats off to the former Marine who made a split-second decision, and a life-changing one.

There have been several scary stadium falls this season, including one at the New York Jets-Baltimore Ravens game, also on Sunday. A man reportedly slipped and fell in the upper deck of M&T Bank Stadium and was taken to the the University of Maryland Shock Treatment Center for emergency surgery.

In addition, an NFL fan died at Week 1's Green Bay Packers-San Francisco 49ers game at Candlestick Park, and two others were injured that same week in a game in Indianapolis between the Colts and Raiders when a railing collapsed at Lucas Oil Stadium.

He is a better, or stupider man than I am.

If I don't know the person, and they want to off themselves, I am not going to risk myself to save them. I have a family that wants to live to care for.

To be fair he might have been a Titans fan who realized that living as a Raiders fan is a fate worse than death.(still he should have grabbed another raiders fan and threw them under her to break her fall!)

It's a nice gesture, but I would think that trying to break the fall of a woman who is falling 45 feet isn't going to do much good, if any. All it's going to do is seriously injure you. They may be crediting him with saving her life, but I have trouble believing that.
