Semi-Trucks Band Together to Save Man Threatening Suicide on Bridge
It was a unique approach by police.
The Michigan State Police devised a unique way to help a man threatening suicide on a highway overpass.
They pulled together multiple semi-trucks under the bridge in Detroit to keep him from falling too far in case he jumped.
All lanes of I-696 were closed in both directions at the Coolidge exit Tuesday as a man threatened suicide.
Thirteen semi-trucks lined up on along the west and eastbound lanes.
Negotiators talked to the man for several hours until he eventually walked off the bridge in a peaceful ending.
He was taken by Huntington Woods Police to Beaumont Hospital for evaluation.
