When we read stories of caring individuals who do good for others, life becomes a little bit better for all of us.
There are still individuals among us who will always be willing to provide a helping hand, despite the fact that it may seem that people’s capacity for empathy is somehow diminishing.
The events that took place on the highway, namely under a bridge on Interstate 696 near Huntington Woods, Michigan, left everyone perplexed and unable to express themselves.
People who were travelling down this route were caught up in a traffic jam; however, after they discovered the reason why 13 trailer trucks were lined up and without moving an inch to block the road, they realized that the delay was well worth it.
After receiving an emergency call about a person who planned to take his life by jumping off of the bridge, the truck drivers responded to aid as a state trooper named Michael Shaw asked for it.
Shaw, who is a very bright guy, had an idea pop into his head right away, but in order to put it into action, he needed some further assistance, so he hurriedly called a traffic officer and requested him to reroute the traffic.
The truck drivers were all more than willing to provide a hand when asked and were able to cover the entire area under the bridge because they were parked there.
This meant that in the event that authorities and experts were unsuccessful in persuading the man to abandon his plan, the trucks would be able to stop him from jumping directly onto the ground, which would help prevent any serious injuries.
Fortunately, there was a happy ending to this story, as the guy was eventually taken off the bridge and received assistance after standing on the edge four long hours.
