NYPD saves suicidal woman from ending her life. You can see from the video that the woman was on her last leg and lost all hope to live. Officers approached her and grabbed her around her waist to pull her back on top of the roof.
Think about what tactics you would use to help someone who is suicidal. If you were in this situation would you have grabbed her right away or would you have negotiated? This is a good video to use for roll call training, to provide dialog for training discussion.
Great work NYPD of saving her life and getting her the help she needs!
