"I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t do anything."The 61-year-old Marine Corps veteran was hospitalized overnight and was recuperating from a severely bruised arm at his home."He simply saved her life," Alameda County sheriff’s Sgt. J.D. Nelson said. "Otherwise, she’d be dead."The woman remains hospitalized in critical condition. Her name has not been released.A Raiders season ticket holder, Navidad said he was with a buddy lingering near the Al Davis commemorative flame at the coliseum when he saw and heard the commotion around the woman, who was on the ledge in the upper deck concourse area that’s covered by tarp."I yelled up at her yelling, ‘Don’t do it, don’t do it. Please don’t jump,’" Navidad said. "And she started to descend and she let herself go."Navidad said his military instincts kicked in as he lunged toward the woman trying to catch her."He couldn’t grab and hold her, and that’s what bothers him," his wife, Lora Navidad, said Monday. "He had no fear or thought for his own well-being."Navidad said well-wishers have thanked him, including Raiders’ hall of fame cornerback Willie Brown who visited personally. Team officials came to his home, and he received a phone call from Hall of Fame wide receiver Fred Biletnikoff."They want to label me a hero, but how do you define a hero?" Navidad asks. "I would’ve done it for anybody."Navidad plans to be at the Raiders’ next home game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 15.

61-YEAR-OLD FORMER MARINE WHO SAVED JUMPER’S LIFE AT O.CO COLISEUM SAY’S HE’D DO IT AGAIN - The injured man authorities say saved a woman’s life after she jumped from the third level of the Oakland Raiders’ stadium said Monday that he’s no hero and he would do it again, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Donnie Navidad said he was among several people pleading with the woman not to jump Sunday as he positioned himself to try catching her. When she plunged about 45 feet from the upper deck at the O.co Coliseum, Navidad, with his arms open, ended up breaking her fall.

Both of them hit the concrete hard from the impact about 15 minutes after the Raiders’ 23-19 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

"I just wished I would’ve grabbed her and held on to her," Navidad said. "I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t do anything."

The 61-year-old Marine Corps veteran was hospitalized overnight and was recuperating from a severely bruised arm at his home.

"He simply saved her life," Alameda County sheriff’s Sgt. J.D. Nelson said. "Otherwise, she’d be dead."

The woman remains hospitalized in critical condition. Her name has not been released.

A Raiders season ticket holder, Navidad said he was with a buddy lingering near the Al Davis commemorative flame at the coliseum when he saw and heard the commotion around the woman, who was on the ledge in the upper deck concourse area that’s covered by tarp.

"I yelled up at her yelling, ‘Don’t do it, don’t do it. Please don’t jump,’" Navidad said. "And she started to descend and she let herself go."

Navidad said his military instincts kicked in as he lunged toward the woman trying to catch her.

"He couldn’t grab and hold her, and that’s what bothers him," his wife, Lora Navidad, said Monday. "He had no fear or thought for his own well-being."

Navidad said well-wishers have thanked him, including Raiders’ hall of fame cornerback Willie Brown who visited personally. Team officials came to his home, and he received a phone call from Hall of Fame wide receiver Fred Biletnikoff.

"They want to label me a hero, but how do you define a hero?" Navidad asks. "I would’ve done it for anybody."

Navidad plans to be at the Raiders’ next home game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 15.

Yes, you’re able to write to inmates at 17. I can’t tell you who to write though because I have no idea what you’re looking for in a pen pal!
