Moses Lake Police Sargent Talks Suicidal Man Off Bridge [VIDEO]
Sgt. Sursely with the Moses Lake Police Dept. might think this is just all in a day's work, but I know a hero when I see one. The Sarg just recently completed a crisis negotiator course and his training paid off in a big way. Yesterday morning (8/28), Moses Lake Police Officers were dispatched to a suicidal subject on the Division Street I-90 overpass. Other agencies also showed up to assist including Washington State Patrol, Grant County Deputies and Grant County Mental Health.
My favorite comment on the video below is from someone who was once in the suicidal man's shoes and was saved by an officer. That officer still calls him regularly to see how he's doing.
