Truckers help stop man from killing himself on Michigan highway


State police organized to have 13 semi-trailer trucks form a line to help prevent the man from taking his own life, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Michigan State Police responded to a call around 1am local time of a man standing on a bridge on the I-696 highway near Oak Park in Detroit, according to Fox2 News.

Michigan State Police started organizing semi-trucks that were passing through the area, having them park under the overpass to shorten the distance the man would fall if he jumped.

Michigan State Police reminds everyone that while this photo does show a fearless rescue effort, it also shows a man struggling.

Veteran drivers say they're not surprised to see this selfless act to stop for several hours to make sure this man went home safely.




All eastbound and westbound lanes of I-696 are back open at Woodward following a police situation.

Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or text to 741-741.

"You can also call a loved one, member of the clergy or 911", the department wrote in a subsequent tweet.

He walked off the overpass, and officers took him to a hospital for evaluation.

If you are having suicidal thoughts, we urge you to get help immediately.
