TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A state trooper's dash camera caught him tackling a suicidal man who was preparing to jump of a bridge.

24-year old trooper Joshua Kim says he used his high school football background to tackle the man and make sure both of them stayed on the bridge, rather than flipping over the side.

This happened in Maryland, on a bridge above the Susquehanna River.


Kim told the Washington Post , "on the way to the hospital, he thanked me. He apologized. He talked to me. He basically poured out why he was doing it. He's been having family issues, some health problems."

Kim has been a state trooper for two years.

The Maryland State Highway Patrol says the man left suicide notes in the car.
