Man saved from jumping from Shanghai bridge
Beijing, May 14 (IANS) Rescue workers in China's Shanghai city Monday saved a man who attempted to commit suicide by jumping from the top of a bridge.
The man, who appeared to be aged, climbed to the top of the bridge around 8 a.m. and was sitting on it facing the Huangpu river, said witnesses.
He was trying to jumping off the 107-metre-long, steel-based Waibaidu Bridge, over the Suzhou Creek, Shanghai Daily reported.
Rescuers cordoned off two of the three lanes on the bridge during the morning rush hour.
While police officers kept him engaged in talk, firefighters inflated a large air cushion underneath the man, said witnesses.
As the negotiators were still talking, two rescuers approached the man from behind and took him under control, and finally brought him down safely.
