Young Girl was Doing The Unthinkable when Rookie Cop Sees Her
“Possible jumper on the York Bridge. Can you notify Pasadena?” He heard on the police scanner. Perez arrived at the bridge, where he found a 12-year-old girl standing on the 6-inch ledge. She was ready to jump.
If Perez said or did the “wrong” thing, the girl would fall 80 feet to her possible death.
Second-by-second, inch-by-inch, Perez came closer and closer. Eventually, the girl let him save her.
