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.
