Truckers Form 'Wall' To Prevent A Man From Jumping From The Overpass
April 24th, 2018
Truckers came togther and saved this man's life. A line of 13 truckers and the Michigan State Police created a wall on I-696 in metro Detroit to help prevent a man from jumping off the overpass.
Chris Harrison, who claims to have been part of the "trucker wall" in a Facebook post on the Twisted Truckers page, said the act of heroism took place between 1 and 3 a.m. Tuesday. It started with one truck and other drivers followed suit. The cops waved 6 or 7 of the truckers through on the eastbound side of the freeway, then did the same thing on the westbound side. It is reported that the man was talked down from the edge. Harrison also said the highway patrolman walked to each truck, shook the truckers hand and thanked each member for their contribution. It's nice to see some good things in the news!
