The Detroit Free Press reports that the rescue effort began with just one truck stopping under the bridge. Officials then waved several trucks down on each side of the highway to fill in the gaps. Due to the teamwork, the man was safely talked down from the edge.
Michigan State Police reminds everyone that while this photo does show a brave rescue effort, it also shows a man struggling. Help is always available through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1 (800) 273-8255.
