Hero lorry driver ‘saves man’s life’ by parking under bridge to stop him jumping
A heroic lorry driver may have saved the life of a young man who he saw perched perilously close to the edge of a motorway bridge.
A distressing image showed a man had climbed over the railing of the M62 bridge and was sat on the end, looking down towards the busy road.
The striking image has been shared by dozens of people and many commentators have lauded the actions of the driver of the heavy goods vehicle.
One person said: “Well done to that lorry driver. Hope the person on the bridge gets the help they need.”
While another added: “Trucker is a good human and deserves the utmost respect.”
Vulnerable Citizen Support Leeds posted the image on social media, writing: “It’s okay, not to be okay.
“This is a picture from the M62 Motorway Bridge – a passer-by has posted it to raise awareness of the situation at hand.
“What people don’t understand is that to jump on the other side of any bridge – indicates something drastically wrong with their mental health. But what’s next……..?
“I have family who have been at this point before and still had to wait a week for an appointment when she found herself on top of a bridge – this post is to raise that awareness that – it’s okay not to be okay – and you can or should speak out.
“What a trucker – stopping on the hard shoulder and leaving his truck there – to ensure when he did jump – it wasn’t a longer distance to the floor.”
