Police and good Samaritans came together last week in Florida to save a woman who was purportedly considering jumping from a bridge.

Cops encountered a nail-biting situation last Tuesday just before 7 p.m., when they received a report of a woman gripping protective fencing and threatening to jump into busy traffic below.
The incident unfolded in Collier County, with police officers and civilians joining together to grab the woman’s clothing through the fence to try to keep her from jumping. It was a difficult effort, as she reportedly kept trying to break free, according to WBBH-TV.
Due to some quick thinking and a trucker willing to help, a potentially deadly situation ended in a life-saving rescue.
As mere fingertips held the woman, one of the officers quickly ran down the road to flag down a massive truck. The driver pulled his vehicle under the bridge, at which point the woman safely fell on top of the massive truck; she was subsequently transported to a hospital for treatment.
Cops believe the positive conclusion to the ordeal was a miracle.
“It’s just us doing our job to the best of our abilities,” Officer Rebecca Maciques told WBBH-TV. “We were in fear for her life. Not only for her, but for the people driving under.”
Watch the incredible rescue:
Cpl. James Sheran, the first officer on the scene, praised the community for coming together and taking action.
“When the community comes together when someone was having a crisis, actually work together to try and help her get through that moment instead of standing by and watching, they helped us out that day,” he said. “That means a lot. I’m really proud to be part of a community that is like that.”
Pray for this woman as she recovers from the near-deadly scenario.
