Karachi traffic cop saves poverty-stricken man from suicide
A viral video showed a traffic cop, Javaid Ahmed, rescue a suicidal guy who had climbed a pedestrian overpass on University Road in Karachi.
A poor man was observed climbing a bridge near Faizan-e-Madinah Masjid and was about to leap off when Ahmad arrived on the scene and convinced him not to jump. The cop then helped the unidentified man in climbing down from the bridge’s summit. Ahmad later brought a meal to the man who hadn’t eaten anything for 3 days.
Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Traffic Ahmed Nawaz visited Javaid Ahmed and awarded him with a Rs10,000 cash prize and an appreciation certificate.
