A dash cam on a police vehicle caught a New Jersey police officer’s dramatic rescue of a suicidal man. In the stunning footage, Riverdale Police Sergeant Greg Bogert jumped into action when the crying man started moving towards the edge of the overpass after running through traffic.
His quick action saved the man’s life. Sergeant Bogert was able to tackle the man to the ground, preventing him from jumping, and keep him there until backup arrived to bring the man to the hospital for evaluation. Police later confirmed the man was trying to take his own life after having family issues.
