An Oakland Raiders fan will be honored this week for his heroic act that likely saved a woman's life.

Donnie Navidad, 61, rushed to break the fall of a woman who jumped from the third deck at O.Co Coliseum following a Raiders game in November.

The 20-year-old woman suffered life-threatening injuries, but survived.

The Marine Corps veteran didn't escape unscathed and was hospitalized for injuries he suffered breaking the fall.

His selfless act of bravery will be honored Friday at a special ceremony by the Coliseum Authority.
