Thanks offered to “amazing” young man and lady who helped person in distress on the bridge

A man has offered thanks to two “amazing” people who helped a person in distress on Wearmouth Bridge yesterday.

The man, who has asked to remain anonymous, stated: “a big thank you to the young man and lady who helped a potential suicide jumper on Wearmouth bridge just in the last 15 minutes.

I pulled over to help but by the time I got around the roundabout these 2 individuals were already jumping into action, they talked with him and held onto and stayed with the young boy until police arrived and thankfully got him back over the barrier.

There are some amazing people out there.”
