This is the dramatic moment when a policeman from a Florida hero is about to "hit a woman" from a bridge & # 39; suicidal woman & # 39; to safety for shocked motorists.
Eyewitnesses watched in horror as the woman carried her legs over the I95 in Miami on Thursday before being taken down by an agent.
The video shows what a woman seems to be about to jump while another officer tries to distract her.
Another agent is ready to bring her to safety before she comes to her and pulls her from the railings, sending her legs into the air.
Two more agents are rushing to help the woman while the blue lights of their squad car are flashing nearby.
In the video the woman can be seen at the edge of the handrails above the I95, left. A policeman approaches her from behind while a colleague seems to distract her, right?
The brave policeman then quickly pulls the woman into safety, while shocked spectators watch their cars from the morning rush hour.
This video was made on the south-east lanes of I-95 on the Ives Dairy Road Viaduct by onlooker Matthew Mariani.
Jimmy Powers, who was in the car with Matthew, said: & # 39; We have never seen anything like this and were in shock when it happened.
& # 39; It is one of those & # 39; moments & # 39; in which you just get quiet and do not really know what to say to each other.
& # 39; As you can see and hear from the video we have not said a word and the only thing you hear is the radio.
& # 39; It all happened so fast. The traffic slowed down and then we looked up and saw this.
& # 39; It's just something you see in the movie or on TV. It was great to see how great these officers were and can only imagine what they have been through. & # 39;
The footage shows two other police officers and then hurries to the help of the woman
Mariani added: "We have never seen anything like it. [It was] only on a regular Thursday morning did it shake upside down.
& # 39; In the beginning, nobody knew what was going on, because there was no accident or cars that blocked the road.
We only arrived at the end of the incident, but we were one of the first cars on scene.
& # 39; After looking up, we witnessed what we thought would be a horrific tragedy for the harrowing rescue. That made this experience that we will never forget.
I can only say that God bless the brave officers for saving a life today. & # 39;
