DETROIT, MI (WCMH) — A photo shared by Detroit police has people talking after it shows a row of semi-trucks lining a roadway to help a suicidal man. 

According to WDIV, the Michigan State Police reported a suicidal man threatened to jump from the I-696 overpass early Tuesday morning. 

That’s when police began asking semi-truck drivers to pull under the bridge to shorten the man’s fall, should he jump, according to WJBK

Thankfully the man didn’t jump, but a photo of the trucks lined up has gone viral after it was tweeted by the Michigan State Police. 

“This photo does show the work troopers and local officers do to serve the public. But also in that photo is a man struggling with the decision to take his own life. Please remember help is available through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255,” the tweet reads.
