This is the moment a heroic bus driver reverses under a bridge to save a suicidal woman as she dangles over the road and is being held up by onlookers.

The startling incident was recorded by an onlooker in front of a school in the city of Guadalajara in the state of Jalisco in Mexico.

Local media report a young woman, who has not been named in reports, had decided to jump to her death from the bridge which runs three metres (nine feet) over the road below.

In the video, the woman can be seen dangling from the bridge as onlookers, believe to be students, hold onto her hand to stop her falling.

The driver of a bus below then reverses so that the woman’s fall would be broken. The woman then drops onto the bus below. She was not injured. 

It is not known why the woman had decided to commit suicide.

Netizen ‘Eduardo Avalos’ commented: “Why don’t they kill themselves in private?”

And ‘Federico Avila Juarez’ added: “What an impressive act from the driver and the students.”
