Despite it taking two hours for proper help to arrive, these members of the public refused to let go of a suicidal man preparing to jump off of a bridge.
Passerby immediately rushed to grab him through the bars so he wouldn’t be able to jump.
As police arrived to offer assistance, the man was also tied to the railing with rope.
Traffic on the North Circular road was stopped until – two hours later – a fire engine with a hydraulic lift was able to bring the man down to safety. He was then detained by an ambulance and taken to the hospital under the Mental Health Act.
