A food delivery rider has just saved the life of a depressed young man who attempted to jump off Ysalina Bridge Sunday night in Cagayan de Oro City. According to SK Brgy Carmen, Grab Food rider Ace Tristan Dy saw the man scaled down the bridge and positioned himself on the ledge of one of the bridge piers in an attempt to jump. Dy quickly climbed down and convinced the man against jumping into the river. Local Barangay SK officials, police and rescue units then responded to the scene.
Initial reports gathered revealed that the young man had been suffering from depression after his girlfriend broke up with him. According to his aunt, a doctor has given him anti-depressant prescription drugs but he was reportedly not taking the medicines.
