Rayong authorities rescued a woman threatening to jump from a highway overpass after learning her boyfriend had cheated on her.
Siripan Pukpul, 30, was pulled from the Highway 36 bridge near the Big C supermarket in Rayong Nov. 18. She was uninjured.
Police said Siripan became agitated and threatened to commit suicide after getting into an argument with her boyfriend while shopping at the nearby mall. As they crossed the bridge to return home, she hopped the fence and threatened to jump.
A rescue worker sneaks in behind the grieving woman and grabs her while others move in to help.
Authorities implored Siripan not to jump, urging her to consider her child and promising to speak to her cheating boyfriend. During negotiations, a rescue worker snuck in behind her and grabbed her by the arms as she held a fence.
