A Trenton (NJ) police officer saved a distraught man from falling to his death from an eighth floor apartment Sunday morning. The officer’s body camera was recording as the man dangled from a window in the Trent Center high-rise apartments on Greenwood Avenue. The rookie officer, Freddy Jimenez, was there because the man’s wife had just died of natural causes.
The apartment did not have a balcony and the man was literally hanging by his fingers when Jimenez arrived.
A police spokesman said Jimenez’s heroic actions speak for themselves on the video, which the department made public Tuesday after news spread among officers about how dramatic it was. Jimenez graduated from the police academy in October 2016.
