Normally when we see Russian dash-cam videos, they certainly have very different endings than this — an inspiring tableau showing a Russian man on a motorcycle risking his life to stop another man from jumping off a bridge and into oncoming traffic. The man on the bridge was heading towards his mother’s funeral and was overtaken by grief when he was ready to jump. The man on the motorcycle drives up under the bridge and shouts to the man to come down so they can talk or he can offer him a ride on his bike. When the man fails to step down, the biker drives up to the bridge and tries to talk him down.
According to the description in the video, the man ended up running off when confronted but ultimately caught, and it’s wonderful that he was discovered before he could make a terrible mistake — a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
