These Heart-Stopping Photos Of A Woman’s Rescue Are Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Seen Before!
Marco Malimban, 48, of Queen Creek, Arizona, stumbled upon something heart-stopping when he was hiking through Camelback Mountain on February 27th. As he was nearing a cliff through his trail, he witnessed a man saving a woman from falling off of the cliff.
“I was frighted by what I saw and aghast at how that day could’ve turned out for her, but also to have been there for a terrible tragedy. I snapped the photo after about 20 seconds after the rescue event and then I had to head down. I didn’t get a chance to say anything to them. It didn’t seem like the right time to.” – He tells ABC News
Malimban was about to take a picture of the beautiful view atop the mountain when he heard a woman scream.
When he followed the scream noise, he saw a woman dangling off the cliff. She fell over the edge but luckily a hiker had grabbed her by the ankles and saved her.
“He stopped her from plunging completely down and pulled her back up. She seemed really shocked. I couldn’t hear any words from them. There was just silence and then they went into that hug you see in the picture.” – Maliban said
He did manage to capture the moments of when they were both safe from further danger, and he’s trying to find out who they are in order to congratulate the man who saved the woman.
“How they held each other afterwards, it seemed like they know each other. I just want the picture to get to them. I think it will be very important to them to have that photo.”
