But such was the sight early Tuesday morning as the Michigan State Police resorted to unusual means to brace the fall of a man considering suicide by jumping off the overpass.

The first call came around 1 a.m. Police closed the eastbound lanes while troopers organized the semi-trucks passing through.

Mike Shaw, a Michigan State Police spokesman, said that the department asked 13 truckers who had been stopped with the highway shut down to head to the overpass.

Michigan State Police tweeted a photo of the attractive moment.

Three hours after it began, the man did not jump and the situation ended as he walked off the bridge.

In a tweet with the photo, MSP Metro Detroit said "But also in that photo is a man struggling with the decision to take his own life".

Chris Harrison wrote that he and the other truck drivers stayed there until about 3 a.m. while officers talked the man down from the edge.
