A NYPD officer used his native Cantonese language to save the life of a suicidal Chinese man who was threatening to jump off a bridge on Monday afternoon.
Officer Yi Huang rushed to help his colleagues when they discovered the despondent man, who was teetering on the edge of New York’s Verrazano Bridge, only spoke Chinese.
During four hours of tense negotiations, Huang discovered that the man was from his hometown,Taishan in China's southern Guangdong province, according to the NYPD.
When responding officers realised that the man did not speak English they called Huang, who managed to arrive at the scene quickly and begin his efforts to coax the man to safety.
As a crowd of policemen and bystanders looked on nervously, Huang spoke to the man, who was distraught over fights he was having with his 18-year-old daughter as well as financial struggles.
Relating his own family’s experience, Huang urged the man, who is in his 30s, to look to the future and think of his daughter getting married and meeting his grandchildren, police said.
Huang was shouting to the man from the roadside which is 10 -15feet from the beam. If Huang came any closer, the man threatened to jump into the water about 400 feet below, police said.
Officers closed down the bridge, which connects Staten Island to Brooklyn, as the hours-long negotiations continued. Shortly after 4.30pm as a thunderstorm threatened, the man decided to let officers rescue him from the ledge.
He was uninjured but taken to Staten Island University Hospital for a check up, according to NYPD.
Huang moved to Manhattan's Chinatown when he was four-years-old and now patrols the streets in the 5th Precinct.
