Big Rig Rescue!

Check out this story from the Minneapolis Star Tribune about a quick thinking state trooper and group of semi trucks that prevented a potential suicide attempt.  When emergency personal were called to an I-94 overpass this past Monday they found a man clinging to the side, threatening to jump.  While fire fighters attempted to remove the chain link fence separating the man from rescue, state police officers enlisted the help of truckers stuck in traffic.  Using six trucks the state police formed a platform they hoped would break the fall if the man fell or decided to jump.  Rescue personal were eventually able to pull the man off the ledge and to safety.  Click the link below to watch actual footage of the rescue.  Team work!
