13 Trucks Line Up To Save Suicidal Man

Truckers in Detroit helped come to the rescue of a man who was threatening to kill himself by jumping from a bridge over the 696 highway.

Michigan police called on the truckers to park under the overpass so that if the man went ahead and jumped he would have less distance to fall!

 

Both lanes were shut down near Coolidge in the early hours of the morning as negotiators worked to try and talk the man down.

Fortunately, after a few hours, the man decided to walk off the bridge and has since been taken for psychiatric evaluation by Huntingdon Woods police.
