Moses Lake, Washington. – A Moses Lake police officer believes that he just happened to be in the right place at just the right moment when he received a call about a man walking along the edge of an over pass.

“We’re all put in places at different times. I just happened to be right down the road when the call came out,” Munro told KHQ

Officer Adam Munro showed up to the scene to find the 45-year-old man straddling the guardrail of the bridge. Hysterical, the man cried repeatedly ‘I don’t want to go home.’ While trying to talk him down, Munro could see the man shifting weight and he knew he needed to act fast. Instinctively, Munro ran over to the man and safely pull him off the edge. Once on the ground a Washington State Patrol trooper helped to detain the man.

Out of harm’s way and a bit calmer, the man thanked Officer Munro and even said he wanted to see his family. He was later taken to the Grant Mental Health facility to be evaluated.
