It’s not everyday you’d get the opportunity to save someone’s life, but it IS everyday you can make a difference in their quality of life.
It doesn’t take much, sometimes all you need to do is sit down and take a listen to what they have to say – maybe nobody else has never cared enough to. One female police officer discovered just how big of a difference a simple talk can make when she and her partner responded to a call about a suicidal man on an overpass.
The guy didn’t trust male police officers at all and refused to speak with anyone but a female, so officers Brandi and Candace headed to the scene. They attempted to speak to him and bring him back over the ledge, but every time it seemed they made progress some passing driver would yell out that he SHOULD jump, it was shattered. These two officers had a message during a news interview that everyone needs to hear, check it out in the video below.
