Before he was safely secured by rescuers, the man who tried to jump off the billboard at an overpass near Gaisano City along CM Recto Avenue in Cagayan de Oro City yesterday could have had a different ending if not for the heroic acts of three unidentified civilians who were onsite.
As shown in this photo below by Cagayan de Oro Campaigners for Road Courtesy, the three also climbed the billboard and grabbed the man as he was about to jump off the overpass. The three held the man until the rescuers arrived on site.
Photo below shows the man who grabbed public attention during the holiday traffic rush.
Here’s a short clip of the traffic.
