The man was wheeled out on a gurney about 6 a.m. and was alert, even waving to a WPXI camera. He was taken to University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Presbyterian Hospital.
Forbes Avenue was closed between Oakland Avenue and Atwood Street during the rescue.
Bruegger's Bagels opened later than usual because of the incident, prompting the restaurant to put the following message to guests in its window:
"Today, August 23rd, we will not be opening til 7 a.m. due the man who thought it would be a good idea to jump our rooftop to impress his girlfriend and got stuck between the building walls!"
