Raiders fan saves woman who jumped from stadium

  • A man broke the fall of a woman who jumped from the third floor to the second-floor concourse of the Oakland Coliseum and the two ended up being hospitalized. 

    The 61-year-old man and a friend attempted to talk to the woman when she was about to jump after the Raiders game but she ended up doing it anyway. The man used his own body to break her 50-foot fall. He is a former Maine and "without him doing that, there's no question what would have happened," a police rep said. 

    The woman is critically injured and is currently under intensive care. The officials expect the brave man to survive.
