Amazing ‘Good Samaritans’ held man for 2hrs 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.
