Pensioner sorts out suicide bid
This cheery video says so much about the human condition.
Police in Guangzhou spend hours trying to talk a suicidal man off a bridge before a pensioner breaks through and does what Plod fails to achieve. He even cuddles him. What happens next is a lesson to anyone dependent on the kindness of strangers. Inspired by the Harry Enfield/Paul Whitehouse school of compassion.
