Without delay, responders rushed up the fire escape in an effort to prevent the male from jumping.

As officers made their way to the top of the fire escape, the male attempted to jump but not before officers were able to grab a hold of the victim and pull him to safety.

For their courageous actions and disregard for the dangers that confronted them, Commissioner’s Commendations were awarded to officers Stephen Canto, Nicholas Beliveau, Pamela Wilson, Alfred James and EMTs Kevin Coan and Cameron Walsh
