Four police officers from the 24th precinct rescued a man who had leaped through the window of a building at 27 West 86th Street last Tuesday, grabbing his legs so he didn’t plunge to the ground. The officers — Eugene Choi, Abraham Morsi, Wiliam Bodner and Nelson Gomez — got a call at 9:16 p.m. about a suicidal 19-year-old man inside a bedroom in the building, police said. They were told he had a knife.
When the officers arrived, the man was standing near the window. After seeing them, he jumped through the window, but the officers grabbed his legs as he headed out and were able to pull him back in.
The man was taken to Metropolitan Hospital and was uninjured, police said.
