Hero employee sacrifices his life by dropping 100ft to save woman stuck on zipline



A heroic man plunged 100ft to his death as he saved a woman after she was stranded on a zipline.



Joaquin Romero was working at the La Jolla Zip Zoom Zipline in the Pauma Valley, California, USA, when a woman slid out onto the line as she was getting hooked to the platform.



The 32-year-old employee reportedly quickly grabbed hold of the harness to stop her but ended up being dragged off the platform himself on Saturday, October 30.



Witnesses allegedly saw Romero and the woman dangling about 100ft in the air.







He thought the extra weight might kill both himself and the woman so he selflessly let go and fell.



Romero suffered multiple injuries to his body including broken bones and blunt-force injuries following the fall.Latest Post
