Semi-trucks line highway to shorten fall for man considering suicide

DETROIT — Thirteen semi-trucks lined a Detroit highway Tuesday morning to help shorten the fall of a man considering suicide, WJBK reports.

The display started around 1 a.m. when an unidentified man was on the bridge and threatening to jump onto Interstate 696.

The semi-trucks first started organizing in the eastbound lanes. A few minutes later, more trucks joined and filled the westbound lanes.

Michigan State Police tweeted a photo of the beautiful moment.

Negotiators spoke with the man for several hours and he eventually walked off the bridge. He was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.

In the tweet, Michigan State Police reminded people that help is available through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-(800) 273-8255.
