The wedgie has for a long time been the prank of choice for schoolyard bullies — but it was recently use as a life saving technique by police in LA. Wait, what?
Officers had been called out to reports of a distraught man who was planning to kill himself by jumping off the 13th floor of an apartment block.
And when they got there, the man — who was upset about splitting up with his girlfriend — was still standing on the ledge and threatening to throw himself onto the ground below.
After talking to him for a couple of minutes, officers made their move and swiftly grabbed the would-be jumper, who ended up dangling over the side of the building, as this video shows.
I probably shouldn’t be laughing, but this is funny. Please excuse my classless sense of humor.
