Powered by Topple

An Oregon police officer exemplified the motto “protect and serve” when he saved a suicidal woman from jumping to her death from a bridge.

Brookings police Officer Jaired Freeman responded to a call Sunday night about a possibly suicidal woman at the Chetco River. When he arrived the woman had just “gotten one leg over the railing,” KOBI reported.

Seeing that, Freeman jumped over a barrier to grab the woman, whose identity has not been released, and pull her to safety. The action was all caught on video via his body camera. The Brookings Police Department released the footage.

The woman was taken to a local hospital.
