Possible life saving catch made at Centennial Bank Stadium

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A big catch was made at Centennial Bank Stadium before football season even gets started.

It happened earlier this summer.

“We were working on the scaffolding on the East side of the stadium, and had gone down to refill our water buckets and I heard something falling,” George Green said. “I thought something was falling down, and looked over and saw a guy start falling past me. He bounced off the window and I grabbed a hold of him and pulled him back on the scaffolding.”

Green was washing windows at the time of the incident and said it was just instinct.

“I didn't even think about it,” he said. “Had he been falling on the other side there would have been nothing I could do because he outweighed me by a bit..just a day at the job, everybody made a big deal about it, and I don't know why.”

Green said luckily the worker he caught was fine after falling two stories and they went straight back to work.

Green said it was no big deal, but people are still asking him about the big save.

Even with the incident, Green said it doesn't scare him to be up that high.

He said he really enjoys it.
