The incident took place in October last year.
A Derbyshire Police Officer's been commended with an award-for helping to save a man's life in Alfreton last year.
On October 25th 2018, a suicidal male tried to jump off a bridge near the A38, but Police Constable Richard Morris was on hand to help.
He told Peak FM, with the help of two others, he was able to drag him back to safety;
"After a couple of minutes of talking to him, he's jumped or fell forward off the bridge. Luckily, he was wearing a hoody, which I managed to grab as he left the bridge. The piece of clothing he had on got caught on his armpits, and that's what saved him really."
"Normally, after engaging with them, they'll come to the right side of the bridge, and we can get them the help they need. It's the first time I've ever had somebody do that in front of me, I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting it. Luckily, I was able to keep a hold of him for a while."
PC Richard Morris has received a Commendation for his efforts in saving a mans life when he stepped off a bridge on the A38. Richard grabbed the man by his hood and with the help of a friend and a colleague, they got him on the right side of the bridge. #CelebratingAchievement pic.twitter.com/EOhHPQCDxF— Derbyshire Police (@DerbysPolice) April 9, 2019
