The Deadly Blow Talent from 6e1 page 113 has a version that covers that.

 

Sneak Attack: only works with blows struck from behind or against Surprised targets

Soft Landing:  Summon garbage truck, dump truck full of sand, or the like; No Conscious Control (only beneath the character when he's being pursued to an elevated location).

 

When trapped on a high ledge, at an open window, etc, the hero somehow always manages to find a vehicle passing below onto which he can safely jump, which then carries him to safety.
