The New York City Police Department (NYPD) yesterday released footage of the moment one of their officers rescued a man who was threatening to jump from the Triborough Bridge, also known as the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, in Manhattan.
The 31-year-old unidentified man reportedly lost consciousness and laid down when the officer tackled him. CPR was performed and he was then taken to hospital.
