Dozen Truck Drivers Parked Under a Bridge to Stop a Guy from Jumping

posted by Matt Provo - 

All eight lanes of a highway in Detroit were temporarily shut down around 1:00 A.M. yesterday morning when a guy got up on an overpass and threatened to JUMP.

So the Michigan State Police got on the horn to a bunch of truckers, and had them all park directly UNDER the overpass.

That way, if he jumped he'd only fall about 10 feet and land on one of the trucks instead of hitting the ground.

Wow. This morning, semi truck drivers got together to help a man considering suicide. This is when the last two trucks showed up to help shorten the fall, if the man were to jump. #truckers
