Stuntmen don’t get to save the day in the movies, but these guys sure made the most of their time in the spotlight. Three pros from Stunts 911 who were in town for Comic-Con rushed into action after a distraught woman climbed over the railing of an apartment balcony 14 floors up. Amos Carver told ABCNews.com that he and colleagues Gregg Sergeant and Scot Schecter were on a scissor lift when they saw people yelling and pointing. They lowered the lift, grabbed some gear and ran across traffic to the building. After scaling a fence, a security guard led them to the apartment. Carver told ABC that when they got there, the woman “was hanging on (the balcony) with one hand, and had one foot off the ledge.” He said Sergeant grabbed her in a bear hug Carver and Schecter secured her in a harness. He added that the woman was “very intoxicated”. Police told local ABC affiliate KGTV that the woman was despondent over a breakup. Check out video of the dramatic rescue taken from a cell phone on the street:
