    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. Regardless, 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 struggle and fall.

    It's unbelievable - I don't know what to think. What a devastating way to go.
     
  2. Did the firefighter sneak up on him, or something? That doesn't sound right.
     
  3. Yes. It's described in the link. The firefighter assumed he was suicidal.
     
  4. I read the article. That sounds aweful. I wonder if it's on tonights news.
     
  5. Thats oct.25th.
     
  6. after watching the vid, yah, the firefighter conducted in a very illogical manner, sadly. the guy got spooked when the firefighter grabbed him from behind unexpectedly (snuck up on him), then lost his grip on the cement wall, slipped and fell...
     
  7. damm that sucks man <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  8. your friend is that Cynthia, yes?
     
  9. shit happens
     
  10. whoa, major failure there.
     
  11. i know where your going with this...

    and i agree.
     
  12. Cynthia's younger sister, actually. But yeah.
     
  13. That's really awful, the sister doesn't seem all that upset in the video, though.
     
  14. Cynthia is #$%#ing hot. I want to bang her.
     
  15. oh yeah, that's too bad about her brother or whatever.
     
  16. It's a shame such a hot girl has lost her brother.
     
  17. all that pretty much just spells oppertunity.
     
  18. I can't fathom why you'd sneak up to a dude in that situation. #$%#ing stupid. Put that squid on fire truck detailing for the next 15 years.
     
  19. *dalmation walker
     
  20. I wouldn't want him in charge of any living things life.
     
  21. you're smarter than me.
     
  22. Yeah, this is one of the later reports. You should have seen in her in the report that came out the day after it happened. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  23. Wow, that sucks. I've always been under the impression that that's exactly what you're not supposed to do in a situation like that.
     
  24. What a retard fireman. That sucks for your friends family and all.
