The policeman who tried to prevent a man committing suicide on Yerevan’s Haghtanak (Victory) bridge was discharged from hospital on Tuesday.
The policeman on duty noticed the man on the bridge and rushed to him across the highway, but was himself run over by a Gazel car. The man did jump from the bridge and was later found by policemen and paramedics. Both the policeman and the would-be suicide were taken to Yerevan’s Hospital #1.
Later the suicide died in hospital, but the policeman is safe and sound.
