Police Stop Man from Committing Suicide

A 34-year-old man tried to jump off a bridge on Estrada Gonçalves Zarco, in Câmara de Lobos, a few metres from “Nico Burguer’s,’ on Wednesday evening, but was prevented from doing so by the Public Security Police (PSP).  

The PSP arrived quickly at the scene, and managed to convince the man to give himself up into their care. Once they had got him to safety, the man who was emotionally and psychologically distraught, begged police officers to allow him to be driven to hospital by a family member, instead of being transported by ambulance.

The man was admitted into hospital, and kept under observation by a multidisciplinary emergency team.
