LA PORTE, Texas (FOX 26) - Dashboard camera video shows La Porte police speaking to a woman whose legs were over the outside rail of the Fred Hartman Bridge and pulling her to safety.
The video, captured on Friday, May 25, shows Officer Chad Burnett speaking for awhile to the woman sitting on the rail while Officer ChristopherCargile and C. Forsythe rush in to grab her and safely pull her onto the shoulder of State Highway 146.
“I was speaking to her and trying to get her to talk to me," says patrol officer Burnett. "She kept shaking her head 'no,' telling me 'no.' "I could see that she was crying and kind of inching closer as we got closer to jumping as we got closer to her, so that’s when I stopped and was just trying to talk to her and get her attention that’s when Officer Cargile and Officer Forsyth came up behind her and grabbed her and pulled her to safety.”
