    So one of my female friends' brother was killed last month in San Fransisco - I found out earlier tonight. I hadn't talked to her for a while, and we haven't had classes this year. Only today did I hear from her, and now I really regret not being for her earlier.

    I googled her brother's name for a news article. Her brother fell from a seventh-story rooftop, but he was never meant to fall. He had taken up a spot overlooking the street and stayed there when some onlookers decided to call the cops. He was almost certainly not suicidal. Even so, a firefighter attempted a rescue from behind without warning him. He recoiled, the firefighter lost his grip, and my friend's brother fell.

    There's a video, including footage of the actual happening shot by a witness.

    It's unbelievable - I don't know what to think. What a devastating way to go. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
