Hilario Guajardo was being chased by police officers on a bridge in Tijuana, Mexico, so he jumped down to the street below.

The incident was filmed by motorist Jorge Jr. Fosado Lopez (video below) and posted on YouTube on Dec. 26.

According to the Mirror, police claimed that Guajardo ran from officers on one side of the bridge, but realized more police were waiting on the other side.

When police closed in from each side, Guajardo jumped off the bridge and ran through traffic, noted My Fox 8.

"I saw him crash to the ground and was expecting him to stay lying on the ground but he just got up and walked off with no visible sign of injury," Lopez told the Mirror. "Everyone was pretty stunned but it took a while for the police to realize that unless they acted they were going to lose him."

The police were able to apprehend Guajardo and later wrote on their Facebook page, "This incident highlights the sort of danger officers face on a daily basis when dealing with people who have taken a cocktail of drugs. It makes them do things that they would never normally dream of, they put their own lives and the lives of others in danger, and also in some cases seem to have almost superhuman abilities to ignore pain."
