Israeli Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon is more than just a skilled politician and a polished speaker; now you can add lifesaver to his resume.

Or at least preventer of broken bones.

The Likud politician was speaking at a rally in Beit Shemesh in advance of mayoral elections to be held on March 11, ordered by Israel’s Supreme Court following the discovery of electoral fraud, when a photographer began to fall backward off the stage.

Danon caught the photographer by the leg and held him in the air until he was able to lower him to someone waiting to help him safely to the ground.

Danon posted a photo of the incident (taken by a different photographer, of course) to Facebook.
