A Stockton man is being honored for saving a woman's life at an Oakland Raiders game.  

A special ceremony honoring Donnie Navidad will take place Friday at Oakland Coliseum.  

Navidad is the Marine Corp veteran who rushed to break the fall of a woman who jumped from the third deck of the Coliseum after a Raiders game in November.

The 20-year-old woman suffered life-threatening injuries, but survived the 45-foot plunge, likely because of Navidad's actions.  

The 61-year-old vet also was hospitalized for injuries he suffered breaking the fall.  

The Coliseum Authority is hosting the ceremony.
