NORTH CAROLINA, USA-- Recently, a police officer made international headlines after preventing a distraught man from ending his life. Police officer Dan Hicks from Raleigh gathered praises for his heroic act.

According to source, the police were notified by witnesses who saw the man attempting to commit suicide on Wade Avenue. Fortunately, Hicks, who is off duty and on his way home noticed the situation and acted quickly.

The incident might have turned nasty if it weren't for this kind-hearted police officer who talked the civilian out of his misery. It just so happened that Hicks is in the right place at the exact time to coax this suicidal man from jumping off Beltline bridge.

Footage from the Department of Transportation camera traffic that showed the two men talking and then embracing have gone viral in the social media.

"What I did last night was part of my job, there was a citizen crying for help, and we certainly answered his cry, and hopefully he will get the help he needs." Hicks stated in an interview.

Moreover, when he approached the man, he immediately noticed that he was upset. Years of training in his field has prepared him to handle situations like this. He acted quickly and brought the man over the side of the bridge.

The suicidal attempt was prevented in less than 10 minutes. “He was very upset, he knew what he had done was drastic. He had gotten himself in a bad spot. He was at the bottom of a dark hole.” Hicks added.
