Bus Driver Spots A Woman On The Bridge. He Pulls Over, Asks For A Hug And Saves Her Life
March 6, 2017
An Ohio bus driver ended up making a stop that saved a woman's life.
Driver Damone Hudson was crossing the Main Street Bridge that spans the Great Miami River in downtown Dayton when he noticed a woman standing on the other side of the rail.
Surveillance footage shows him pulling his bus over to the side of the road before opening the door and urging the woman to step back from the ledge.
He then said, "Ma'am, you look like you're having a bad day, you know. Can I give you a hug?"
"I just knew I needed to talk to her," Hudson said. "I wasn't trying to be heroic. I just saw someone that looked like she was definitely in pain or trouble and I just wanted to make a connection."
When police arrived the woman stood back from the ledge, and Hudson carried on with his route.
"Everyone's going through something. Even if you are, just reach out and try to touch someone, even if it's in a small way," Hudson said.
