Youth Risks His Life to Crawl After Suicidal Woman and Talk Her Down

A situation that could have ended in tragedy took an inspiring turn last weekend when a Good Samaritan risked his own life to comfort a suicidal woman and talk her down from the edge.
The woman was first spotted on Saturday afternoon crawling across a section of beams in the Broadway and Lafayette subway station. The beams, which were roughly 20 feet above the subway floor, made for a dangerous drop.
Klein then saw a young man start crawling across the beams to where the woman was sitting. When the youth finally reached the woman, he sat next to her, put his arm around her shoulder, and started talking to her quietly.

“He actually cared enough, whoever he was, to help her. A lot of people seemed to be like ‘Oh, it’s New York’, and kept walking,” Klein told CBS New York. “I don’t know what I would’ve done. I don’t think I would’ve climbed over to do that.”

Inspiring to see a youth do this. Makes him a man in my book.
Special place in Heaven for him, I hope.
