Just in case you missed this today, I thought this was the most inspirational news story I've heard in a very long time. Not just that the bus driver stopped his bus in the middle of the bridge, got out, and managed to talk the would-be suicide back onto this side of the railing, but that he then...
sat down beside her and put his arm around her, and stayed with her until counselors arrived.
When our typical news story is about scheming politicians or police officers getting shot or people losing employment, it is so refreshing to hear some really good news.
From UK Daily Mail:
"Hero driver stops bus full of passengers in the middle of a bridge and saves suicidal woman from jumping
- Darnell Barton was going along his usual route in Buffalo when he spotted the woman at the other side of the rail
- Described her as distraught and disconnected
- When he asked her if she wanted to go on the other side of the rail she said yes
- He sat and talked with her until counselors came
