Turns out all that training actually DOES prepare stuntmen for more than making it look like CHANNING TATUM jumped out of a helicopter.
On Thursday, a team of stuntmen from a company called Stunts 911 were in San Diego for Comic-Con. They were setting up a 30-foot zipline for a stunt they were going to perform at an outdoor party for the movie "Kick-Ass 2".
Suddenly they noticed a crowd gathering across the street, outside a condo building. A woman was hanging off a balcony on the 14th floor, and at first people thought it was another Comic-Con stunt. But it wasn't . . . she was going to kill herself.
Every second was CRUCIAL until the police and fire department got there . . . so the stuntmen SPRANG into action. They got someone in the building to let them in, found the woman's door was unlocked, and snuck onto her balcony.
Then one guy grabbed her while two others quickly put a safety harness around her. They dragged her back into the room, and she was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
The cops also praised the stuntmen for their DANGEROUS rescue. Quote, "It was very dangerous. I've seen attempted suicides when someone grabs them and is pulled over." (Los Angeles Times / Yahoo)
