"He was like Spider-Man"

New York City firefighter Brian Quinn was recently lowered down via rope to a panicked woman clinging to the outside of the apartment window and standing on the narrow sill in Harlem. Quinn and a fellow firefighter went to the 17th floor, just above the woman, and he managed to climb down and hold her securely to keep her from falling. "I just said, 'I'm not going to let you fall. We're going to get you inside.'"

Crews eventually extinguished the flames, and the woman was able to re-enter her apartment through the window, without being lowered to the ground. Bystanders below said Quinn's heroics looked like something out of a move. Said one, "He was like Spider-Man, encasing her body to make her feel safe."
