PORT DEPOSIT, Md. (WNEW/AP) — Maryland State Police say a trooper saved the life of a man who appeared about to jump off a 90-foot bridge.
Saturday’s incident on the Millard E. Tydings Memorial Bridge in Port Deposit was recorded by Trooper Joshua Kim’s dashboard camera.
Kim tells WBAL Radio that he saw the man walking on the bridge, which carries Interstate 95 over the Susquehanna River in northeastern Maryland. Kim says he turned around and parked, but when he approached the man, the man began to climb over the bridge.
The video shows Kim, 24, pulling the man from the wall to the ground and handcuffing him for his safety.
The man, whom troopers did not identify, was taken to a local hospital.
