Semi-trucks help prevent man from committing suicide

Afterwards, Harrison said a state police trooper went to each truck and shook the hands of the truckers and thanked them for helping state police.

Police then directed the trucks to line underneath the overpass.

All eastbound and westbound lanes of a Detroit highway are back open following an intense police situation.

In total, 13 semi trucks parked under the overpass to shorten the distance the man would fall if he jumped, WJBK reports.

It was 911 calls that alerted police to the man around 1 a.m. Tuesday on the overpass in Huntington Woods, just outside Detroit, Shaw said.

13 semi-trucks were the only vehicles allowed to pass during the incident on Tuesday morning.

The news source says a call came in at 1 a.m. reporting the man on the bridge.

He said state police flagged six or seven truckers through and stopped them under the bridge. The interstate was closed for several hours as emergency crews worked to get the man off the overpass.

"This photo does show the work troopers and local officers do to serve the public", the MSP Metro Detroit tweet said.

Help is always available for you or a loved one through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, or text to 741-741. "It is our hope to never see another photo like this again".
