Stuntmen rescue suicidal woman on balcony at Comic-Con Published: July 23, 2013

San Diego's Comic-Con is full of regular folk in superhero costumes. But on Thursday a real life set of heroes didn't need to dress up to help a suicidal woman off of an apartment complex's balcony near the convention, according to reports.

Stuntmen Amos Carver, Gregg Sergeant and Scot Schecter, who work for Stunts 911, were setting up a scaffolding for a movie premiere party to promote "Kick-Ass 2" near the building when the woman — reportedly upset over a breakup — stepped onto the 14th floor balcony and began climbing over the railing. Carver later told press, "She was hanging on (the balcony) with one hand, and had one foot off the ledge."
