Passengers and the driver of a bus in China have prevented a woman from committing suicide at the Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge. A surveillance video shows the bus driver stopping his vehicle and grabbing the woman, who was about to jump from the bridge in Nanjing, on 25 October.

She was standing on the guardrails of the bridge before the driver pulled her back from the edge. Local police officers have said the woman was attempting to commit suicide due to family troubles.

After the driver stopped her from jumping, he and other passengers took her on to the bus, despite significant objections from the woman.
