An unidentified man saved a lady when she tried to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge in Guadalajara, Mexico.


In a short video that went viral soon after hitting the Internet, several people appeared holding the hand of a lady wearing black pants and a grey hoodie, who was hanging off a footbridge.

A bus driver noticed the dangerous situation, so he placed the vehicle right under the unidentified woman. When the people preventing the suicide saw the bus, they let the lady go.

Even though she landed on the roof of the bus quite roughly, the impact was nothing compared to what she would have felt if the bus driver hadn't intervened. Fortunately, the lady came out of the incident unharmed.

The footbridge is approximately three meters high, so although the fall might not have been fatal, the woman could have ended up with severe injuries in her legs and maybe trunk, depending on the way she landed.

Soon after posting the video of the heroic act on Facebook, people took to the comment section to share their thoughts. Some of them pointed out that she probably wouldn’t have died from the fall but that a vehicle could have hit her once she was on the street, causing a legal problem to that driver.

Another person noticed that netizens were criticizing the lady for trying to kill herself and remarked that depression was a real problem that has killed many people throughout the time.



On a similar note, a 10-year-old boy named Seven Bridges committed suicide after repeated bullying over colostomy bag. After trying his best to endure the mistreatment, the boy hanged himself in the family’s home.

Bridges underwent 26 surgeries after he was born with a medical defect. He was required to wear a colostomy bag which apparently would smell. This became the reason why children would pick on the fifth grader.


Renee Murphy, the communications director of Jefferson County Public Schools, expressed her devastation over Bridges’ suicide saying that their hearts were “breaking for this family. The school community is hurting right now.”

Murphy vowed to investigate the matter of bullying in school as Tami Charles, the boy’s mother, insisted the school “failed” to her son.

She recalled alerting the school of Bridge’s case, including incidences when he was called the n-word and choked on a bus ride, but the school didn’t do anything. Nowadays, Charles asked the children who hurt her son to forgive themselves.
