Life becomes better when we hear stories about compassionate people who do good to others. Even though it seems like the empathy in people is somehow fading away, there are still those who never hesitate to offer a helping hand.
What was happening on the Highway, under a bridge on Interstate 696 in Huntington Woods, Michigan, left everyone both puzzled and speechless.
People who were driving along this road got stuck in a traffic jam, but when they learned the reason why 13 trailer trucks were placed in line and not moving an inch blocking the road, they knew the waiting was worth it.
The truck drivers came to help after State trooper Michael Shaw got an emergency call about a person who wanted to commit suicide by jumping off the bridge. Shaw who is a really clever man immediately came up with a brilliant idea, but in order to put it into action he needed some additional help, so he rushed to call a traffic cop and asked him to redirect the traffic.
All of the truck drivers were more than happy to assist.
By parking under the bridge, the trucks covered the entire area under it so in case officials and experts failed in convincing the man to let go of his intention, the trucks could prevent him from jumping directly on the ground and help avoid any serious injuries.
However, there was a happy ending to this story, because after four long hours, the man was taken off the bridge and offered psychological help.
The truck drivers never hesitated to help, even if that meant waiting for so much time.
We are thankful that there are still people out there like the kindhearted drivers.
