Crazy Video SEE IT: Hero Cop Tackles Distraught Man About to Jump Off Bridge
(WARNING: Graphic content)
Dramatic dash cam video shows the moment a New Jersey police officer jumped into action and stopped a man from committing suicide.
The Riverdale Police Department said in a Facebook post that Sergeant Greg Bogert responded to multiple 911 calls reporting a man walking in and out of traffic on a bridge on Route 287 on Monday.
When he arrived on the scene, Bogert found the man visibly upset and crying.
Bogert attempted to calm the distraught man, but he suddenly ran away and attempted to jump off the overpass.
Just as the man reached the cement barrier, Bogert managed to tackle and subdue him.
Bogert restrained the man and eventually calmed him down enough to be placed in an ambulance and transported to a local hospital for psychological help.
