Dramatic moment Miami cop saves 'suicidal' woman on bridge

This is the moment a Miami police officer hauled a woman who appeared to be about to jump from a bridge.

The incident took place this morning (January 17) over the 95 overpass railing during rush-hour.

In the video, it appears to be a female who appears on the verge of jumping while one officer distracts her. At that moment, another officer comes from behind her and hauls her to safety.

This video was taken on the southbound lanes of I-95 at the Ives Dairy Road Overpass.

Jimmy Powers who was in the car with filmer Matthew Mariani told Newsflare: "We have never seen anything like this before and were in shock as it was happening.

"It’s one of those 'in the moments' where you just get silent and don’t really know what to say to one another.

"As you can see and hear from the video we didn’t say a word and all you hear is the radio.

"It all happened so fast. The traffic slowed down and then we looked up and witnessed this.

"It’s like something you see in the movies or on TV. It was amazing to see how great those officers were and can only imagine what they went through."

Mariani added: "We’ve never seen anything like this. [It was] just a regular Thursday morning commute turned upside down.

"At first, no one knew what was going on because there was not an accident or cars blocking the road.

"We only caught the end of the incident but we were one of the first cars on scene.

"After looking up we witnessed what we thought was going to be a horrifying tragedy turn to the harrowing rescue. That made this experience one we will never forget.

"All I can say is God bless the brave officers for saving a life today."
