Truckers team up, save suicidal man on metro Detroit freeway
A man tried to jump off a Detroit overpass. Then 13 truckers saved him.
This incident occurred on the expressway that bypasses Detroit city areaInterstate 696The overhead bridge part. In the early hours of local time on April 24, 2018, a man was found to be throwing himself from above the overpass.
Men were trying to jump off at about 1 o'clock in the morning and around 3 o'clock, but although relatively small traffic volume, it is inevitable to lose their lives when coming in contact with a car running at high speed. While the men were kept in persuasion of the surroundings, they did not destroy the attitude of jumping off, and it seems that the circumstance of one shot was going on.
It appeared there are 13 trailer groups. The trailer led by the police rushed to the site with 6 to 7 groups from both the east side and the west side of the overpass, and all cars stopped right under the overpass. As a tall trailer has settled under the crossover, even if a man jumps off, it is almost unlikely to bear big injuries. In addition, at this stage the highway was blocked, so there was no danger of being hit by a passing car.
Chris Harrison, a tracker who cooperated with this great strategy, said Facebook's community page "Twisted TruckersWe are posting a couple of photos. The following pictures contain a large trailer that fills the bottom of the overpass bridge, and a man and a dudeski who is about to jump are standing on the edge of the crossover bridge.
Thanks to this effort and persuasion, men abandon jumping safely. It is said that he was taken to an hospital by an ambulance.
We also announced the official Twitter account of Michigan State Police Metro / Detroit.
