A U Pitt Student Got Stuck Between Buildings Trying to Impress A Girl

By Jenna Ciccotelli - Aug 25 2016

One student at the University of Pittsburgh took things to the next level to impress his date and ended up leaving a lasting impression not only on her, but on the paramedics that came to his rescue.

The unidentified student was on the roof of a building on Pittsburgh's Forbes Avenue when he tried to jump to the roof of the neighboring building. He did not make the jump and became wedged in a 16 inch thick gap three stories above the street for four hours.

According to PittNews, rescue crews had to drill three holes in the walls of the Qdoba and Bruegger's Bagels buildings. The man was taken to an nearby hospital but will recover completely,  a spokesperson for the Pittsburgh police said.

Chad Brooks, who owns the Qdoba restaurant, said the establishment will be closed for several weeks as the interior wall is replaced but is not looking to press charges against the man.
