That's one way to get a second date.

On Tuesday morning, emergency crews used a jackhammer and other heavy equipment to break through the wall of a Qdoba restaurant located in Pittsburgh and rescue a young man whose attempts at wooing his date had failed miserably.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Grant Birdsong, a 22-year-old University of Pittsburgh student, was trying to impress a girl by leaping from roof to roof.

Birdsong missed, slipped between two buildings, and got wedged between them. Lucky for Birdsong, he did not have to pull off any 127 Hours, James Franco-style self-surgery to escape his situation. Rescue workers took care of that for him.

Following his rescue, Birdsong was taken to UPMC Presbyterian with a broken ankle.

The would-be roof leaper wasn't the only victim of his antics. Neighboring streets were closed for more than five hours on Tuesday morning.

Honest citizens were blocked from getting their morning bagels.

Not to mention the suffering endured by the good folks at Qdoba.
He really wrecked that Qdoba.
And we mean really.
Next time, look before you leap, dude. Or try flowers. We hear flowers work great!
