VIDEO: Raleigh Police Officer Talks Man Off Bridge and Hugs Him

Powerful video from a North Carolina DOT camera shows a Raleigh police officer's act of compassion Wednesday evening, reports ABC 11.

Just after 7 p.m. police got a call about a man who was hanging over the edge of a bridge. Officer Dan Hicks reached out to the man and developed a rapport with him.

After a short period of time, the man agreed to come off the bridge. That's when Hicks hugged the man for quite some time, then walked the man back to a car.

Can't tell about the man but the Officer appears to be black so that is all you will hear about this one. No soap to sell here.

That is exactly what this man needed, and this officer is commended for this act. I am speaking as a Forensic Psychologist with a history of pro bono work in both Fairfax and Arlington Counties, VA. LEO's of today have the problems of the world put on them. They are expected to handle situations that involve specialization skills above and beyond their job descriptions. Here we have a LEO doing an excellent job, and he provided the proper reaction at exactly the right time. Kudos!
