A 50-year-old jobless man, coupled with depression over his 30-year-old son’s recent death in a mishap, tried to commit suicide but was luckily saved by a policeman who was passing by.

The incident took place at Kalwa in the outskirts of Mumbai, India, today morning.

“The man identified as Dhananjay Bhagwan Kamble, a resident of Kalwa and a painter by profession, was facing financial problems as he was jobless. Moreover, his 30 year old son had died four months after being run over by a moving train. Depressed over these, he set out to commit suicide from the under construction bridge at Shivaji Naka at around 10.30 am today,” said Kalwa police station Senior Inspector Shekhar Bagade who witnessed the suicide attempt and saved him from certain death.

“I was passing by the same road on the way for an official meeting, when I saw Kamble jumping off the bridge with a noose tied around his neck. I spotted a crane on the road and asked the operator to station beneath the hanging Kamble. One of my constables then climbed up the crane and brought down Kamble safe and sound,” said Bagade.

In the video taken by passersby, Kamble can be seen threatening to jump off the bridge after tying one end of the rope to iron rods on the bridge and the other end as a noose around his neck. After a few seconds, he sits on the edge and jumps off with the noose around his neck. Hanging by the rope, Kamble holds on to it above his head and struggles by which time help arrives in the form of the crane and the cops who rescue him from sure death.

Kamble was then taken to the police station where he was counseled before being let off.
