Truckers Help Save Man Planning to Jump off Bridge in Michigan
Early this morning, Michigan State Police and 13 truckers worked together to help a man who was preparing to jump off a bridge and take his own life.
Chris Harrison was one of the truckers. He says the incident happened at I-696 and Woodward Ave. from 1 a.m. until 3 a.m.
Harrison shared his experience on Facebook. Harrison said, "The cops came up and waved 6 or 7 of us through and then stopped us under the bridge.....Same thing on the west bound side....I just happened to be one of the guys in the front of the line."
Harrison says the man on the bridge was brought down safely. He said, "The highway patrolman came to each truck and shook our hands and said thanks for helping."
