VIDEO: Minnesota Officer Rescues Suicidal Man from Ledge

A Minnesota police officer's body-worn camera captured the powerful moment when he pulled a man off the ledge of a building.

Duluth Police Chief Gordon Ramsay wrote on Facebook that the incident occurred during the week of Sept. 21. In the video, Officer Joe DeJesus is responding to a call about a man on the ledge of a parking garage threatening to jump off. DeJesus is careful approaching the man.

"I'm not here to jam you up," he says. "I'm here to help you."

The last few seconds of the video capture the crucial moment when DeJesus pulls the man to safety. As the man accepts DeJesus' cigarette, the officer takes the opportunity to pull him off and away from the ledge, KABC reports.
