A man who had been on a 10th floor ledge at 710 West End Avenue between 94th and 95th street was rescued on Thursday night around 7 p.m. as dozens of onlookers watched. One witness, A. Baier, said the rescue workers wrapped the man in an airbag and removed him from the scene. “Don’t know how they got him in [the airbag] but he was squirming to get out,” Baier told us. He captured the aftermath in the short video below.
Glad the dude on a ledge on 95th street did not jump to his death. Well, they got him in a body bag before he could. pic.twitter.com/I1qVAlucBI
