Firemen Net Diver
In Chicago fire fighters spread a net and caught Mrs. Lillian Long, 77, on Oct. 7th as she plunged from the sixthstory window of the Sheridan Plaza Hotel.
Authorities said it was an attempted suicide. She suffered only a bruised shoulder.
A policeman spotted the woman, clad only in a nightgown, sitting on the window ledge. A ladder company was called and arrived just in time to get its net spread below, before the woman fell.
