The NYPD recently released body camera video this week of officers in action dealing with a suicidal man – but the video has a good ending.

NYPD News shared the video on X:

Police Officers frequently interact with people having the worst day of their lives. Two weeks ago, Officers Fayette & Mata from the 26 Precinct talked to a distraught man in crisis for nearly 40 minutes until officers from the Emergency Service Unit rescued him.

Once the suicidal man was secured by the ESUs on the bridge, Officer Fayette’s body camera shows that as he walks away he is overcome with emotion.
