We found a four-foot tall ledge in Midtown Manhattan and decided to put a suicide jumper on it. A police officer, fireman, and the man’s wife and co-worker all arrive on the scene to talk him down. This is a newly remastered video from a project we did in 2005, more info below.

This 2005 mission is the fourth in a series of remastered videos we are producing from our archives to commemorate our 10th anniversary. We are going through our original tapes and updating old classics with higher quality video and audio, as well as adding additional never-before-seen footage. Due to file size restrictions in the early days of YouTube, many of these videos have only been seen in extremely low 240p quality. The remastered Suicide Jumper video dramatically improves the video quality and removes the previously used copyrighted music, allowing the video to be seen in some countries for the first time. The original mission report is still online for your reading pleasure.
Look for more remastered videos in the future, including some that have never been posted to YouTube, and stay tuned for our regular schedule of brand new missions throughout the year.
