VIDEO: Bus driver saves woman from jumping off bridge
This man is being hailed as a hero. We can understand why.A bus driver working for the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority pulled over when he noticed a woman sitting on a railing of a bridge appearing as if she were about to jump.
Darnell Barton had just picked up a group of high school students when the shocking scene made him slow down. At first glance, he couldn’t believe what he was witnessing.
“I didn’t think it was real with everything else going on around her. Traffic was proceeding as normal and a couple of pedestrians walked right by her and a bicyclist rode by. I mean, they were inches from her,” Barton told The Buffalo News.
Barton approached the woman and asked whether she is all right. He brought her back over the railing and talked with her until officials arrived.
