A dramatic rescue effort that paid off for a 19-year-old South Florida man.
Footage has surfaced of Miami-Dade County Police Department responding to a call about a young man hanging from the 826 Palmetto overpass at Bird Road. The intense rescue caught both on body cam and by nearby onlookers. Sergeant Cheryl Diaz spoke on the incident:
“He knew that he would slip at any minute so he sprang into action, completely selflessly determined to save that young man’s life. As he was able to grab a hold of the one arm I grabbed a hold of the second arm.”
