See how good samaritans hold on to suicidal man, for 2 hours, to stop him jumping from bridge

Good samaritans came to the rescue of a man who was threatening to jump from a bridge. The pictures reveal how a small crowd gathered around the man who hung on the edge of the foot bridge in Golders Green, North London – and gripped onto him tightly, refusing to let him go. .

Eyewitness Nigel Howard who also took the photos told Mailonline “The crowd wanted to see what was going on, but there was also a but of frustration among others because people weren’t even allowed to cross the bridge to get home.

There were quite a few gasps and shocked faces, but a lot of people did not actually realise what was going on until it was pointed out to them.” A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed the man had been detained under the Mental Health Act.
