Police Officer Saves Suicidal Man With Football Chat
South Carolina Police Officer Michael Blackmore has received praise for the commendable way he handled this very dicey situation.
While on duty he encountered a man sitting on a bridge railing, crying. Keeping calm and empathetic, officer Michael Blackmore started a casual conversation with the man, trying to highlight things to look forward to in the near future.
After a short while the conversation turned to football, as he realises they both support a local team. Blackmore says, "Come on back over here bud you wanna be able to watch the game tomorrow night."
