The Sunday afternoon of 29 May 2016 wasn't a normal one for the Albuquerque Police Department in New Mexico. A depressed man was ready to jump off the Wyoming freeway overpass and the police had double jobs to do: Convince the man to come on the safer side with the police and to control the traffic that was jammed due to the chaos going on over the freeway.
Two female cops, Officer Brandi Madrid, and Officer Candace Bisagna spent hours in talking the distressed man into quitting the idea of jumping off the freeway and mostly, quit the idea of ending his life. What the two lady cops did was remarkable!

The suicidal man was determined to jump the freeway over the Interstate 40 which created a pandemonium around.
Officer Madrid told the press: "He has a lot to say and a lot to express, so the main thing is taking it all in and listening to what he has to say."
Worse was the behavior of the passing by drivers who were extremely unsympathetic with the man and telling him to jump and die.
Ofc. Bisagna said :"Be compassionate and show a little bit of empathy with his situation. I mean he's someone's son, someone's brother."
