Syracuse Hero Saves Stranger’s Life, Talking Her Off a Bridge
A Syracuse man is a hero after helping save a woman's life, talking her off a bridge.
Nick Brice followed the woman after hearing her say she was going to jump from a bridge. It was a good thing he did. Brice found the woman standing on the Spencer Street overpass. After asking someone to call 9-1-1 Brice kept telling her to "come over here and talk to me."
Brice reassured the woman "you've got people that care about you. Let me buy you a coffee and we can talk about it."
After several tense minutes with cars honking and crashing below, thankfully the woman finally agreed to come off the bridge.
Thank God Nick and several other good Samaritans were there to help talk the woman to safety. "I don’t see myself as a hero," says Brice. "I'm just someone that wants to see the world treat each other with more kindness and love in a world filled with so much hate and racism."
