Praise for hero trucker who parked lorry under man on M62 bridge
Hundreds across Yorkshire have given their reaction after a lorry driver may have saved the life of a young man who was sitting over the edge a bridge on the M62 today. A distressing image showed a man had climbed over the railing of the M62 bridge and sat on the end, looking down towards the motorway. When a lorry driver saw it, they moved into the hard shoulder and parked up, leaving the truck directly underneath the man on the edge of the bridge.

And after LeedsLiveposted the article earlier today, many have now spoken fondly of the truck driver’s actions, whilst sending their thoughts and prayers to the individual who had been on the bridge.
Natalie Louise Ellis said: “What an amazing & caring thing to do. I truly hope the other man gets all the help & support he need.” Elaine McDonald said: “Restores my faith in human beings – well done the lorry driver!”

“This is a picture from the M62 Motorway Bridge – a passer-by has posted it to raise awareness of the situation at hand. “What people don’t understand is that to jump on the other side of any bridge – indicates something drastically wrong with their mental health. But what’s next……..?
“I have family who have been at this point before and still had to wait a week for an appointment when she found herself on top of a bridge – this post is to raise that awareness that – IT’S OKAY – NOT TO BE OKAY – and you can or should speak out.
“What a trucker – stopping on the hard shoulder and leaving his truck there – to ensure when he did jump – it wasn’t a longer distance to the floor.”
