Video captured by a Hamden police officer’s body cam shows the officer’s daring save of a man’s life just as he attempted to jump off a six-story building.

Police were called to the Whiney Center for a report of a resident fighting with people the afternoon. Officer Justin Martin was meeting with staff members and an elderly male resident on the third floor when the patient ran away from staff members and climbed all the way to the top floor.

The officer found the resident going through a 6th-floor doorway that leads directly to a terrace on the roof. But as the officer got closer, the man jumps off head-first over a railing. He grabbed the resident by his feet and pulled him to safety. The man continues to fight the officer during the rescue but was eventually taken to a nearby mental hospital for evaluation.
