Columbus police on Monday released dramatic body camera video of officers stopping a suicidal teen from jumping off a bridge.
The video shows an unidentified 17-year-old girl dangling her hands and feet from the edge of the Greenlawn Avenue bridge over the Scioto River the night of March 20, according to WSYX-TV.
As police officers sprint towards the girl, she sobs and tells them "no."
Officers Kenneth Kropp and Anthony Sebastiano reached the girl first and secured her arms as two more officers helped pull her back over the railing to safety.
"I thought she was gone, honestly. She was so close," Kropp told the news station. "She was picking one hand up of the railing, then the other."
Sebastiano recalled the incident, saying he is thankful he was able to help.
"I just feel blessed to be put in that situation," he said. "I took this job to help people, and that was obviously a great opportunity to help someone in need."
